There were more smiles than goals Aug. 7 at Compuware Arena as the Blue and White battled to a 14-14 draw in the second annual Plymouth Whalers Alumni Game. In case you missed it, here's the roster for the game.
Two years ago, Austin Levi split time between the Whalers and Compuware Midget Major team. Last season, he kept progressing and was named the Whalers Most Improved Player. In June, he was rewarded by being selected 85th overall by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2010 NHL Draft, but Levi knows he still has a lot of work to do before he reaches his ultimate goal.
