Levens and Panzo Selected to Attend Training CampOrlando, FL – The Orlando Solar Bears announced today that two players, forward Matthew Panzo (Eustis, FL) and defenseman Edward Levens (Clermont, FL) were selected from a group of 36 players who participated in last week’s open tryouts to compete at Solar Bears Training Camp. Panzo and Levens will be introduced to the media after the announcement of a partnership between the Orlando Solar Bears and the RDV Sportsplex Ice Den tonight (Tuesday, September 4th) at the RDV Sportsplex at 7:00 p.m.Panzo (5’10”, 170 lbs.) was born and raised in Eustis, Florida, before heading up to Ontario as an eighth-grader to gain more hockey experience. The move paid off, as Panzo worked his way on to the roster of Gilmour Academy, a prep school in Cleveland, OH. During the 2011-12 season, the 20-year-old forward played for the Tampa Bay Juniors, notching eight goals and nine assists for 17 points in 28 games. He was tied for second on the team with two game-winning goals. Panzo is attending Valencia College.“I’m excited to have this opportunity. I’m really looking forward to building chemistry with the rest of the guys on the team and showing Coach Berehowsky what I can do,” said Panzo.Levens, (6’2”, 208 lbs.) grew up in Chicago, Illinois, and played youth hockey for the AAA-level Chicago Chill. The 25-year-old played one season with the Indiana Ice in the USHL in 2006-07, posting two goals, five assists, and 100 PIM in 46 games. The fair weather enticed Levens to move to Florida in 2008, and he has been keeping up his skills by playing in local men’s leagues. He is currently working for Midwest Chemicals.“I’m very happy to get a second chance at a professional career,” Levens said. “I really want to prove that I belong in this league, and I hope to show Coach Berehowsky and the Solar Bears organization that I am a good fit on this team.”Orlando Solar Bears Head Coach Drake Berehowsky said, “I was very pleased with the level of talent I saw out of the players who came to tryouts. Both Matt and Edward stood out on the ice, and I am looking forward to seeing them compete for a spot on the roster.”“We are very proud of Matt and Edward, two players who have skated here at the RDV Sportsplex,” said RDV Sportsplex Ice Den Director of Operations Debby Kwasman. “We’re excited to see them compete in Solar Bears camp, and we look forward to seeing who will be the next young players to develop at RDV and hopefully one day make a future Solar Bears team.”The Orlando Solar Bears, the ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Minnesota Wild and AHL's Houston Aeros, are coming Out of Hibernation and will play 36 regular season home games at the 2012 Street and Smith's Sports Business Journal Sports Facility of the Year, the Amway Center, beginning October 20, 2012.

Friday night came with anticipation; USF has had the upper hand in the UF/USF series for the past couple seasons, but this Gator team looked to change that precedent. The puck dropped in Orlando and the Gators took no time at all to get the game underway. 4 minutes into the game, Michael Jugan buried a power play goal to put the Gators up 1-0 early. By the end of the period the Gators had built up a solid 4-0 lead. The second period was no different; the Gators charged ahead to a 9-2 lead on goals by Michael Jugan, Scott Schilson, Michael Dutka and Matt Girello. The third period showed a bit of slack in the Gator attack as USF slimmed the gap, but the end result was a huge 11-7 Gator hockey win. The first line of Dutka-Schilson-Jugan proved dominant once again, finishing with 6-7-5 points respectively; each with a hat-trick. Dan Hill tacked on 2 assists to his season total while Girello and Dusome finished the scoring for the Gators with a goal each. Senior goaltender Jake Lewis fought off 55 shots, making a total of 48 saves in the game.Sunday brought life to a previously quiet Tampa Bay Times Forum. The Gators came out of the gate strong again, with an early goal from Dan Hill. USF returned the favor however, adding 2 goals with only 2 minutes left in the first period. Facing a 2-1 deficit, the Gators capitalized on a late period power play with a goal by Scott Schilson. Entering the second period with a 2-2 tie, the Gators looked to push ahead; a quick goal by Joel Haines accomplished that task and put the Gators up 3-2. Scott Short and Michael Jugan added two more goals in the second period to push the Gators lead to 3. The third period ended up scoreless, giving the Gators the 5-2 win and series sweep of USF. Senior goalie Jake Lewis started his fifth game in a row and took home the win with 41 saves on 43 shots.
