Seven seasons ago Cory Ward and Zach Pochiro were skating for an AAA Nevada Stars 16u team at the Las Vegas Ice Center. Cory was the center, Zach and Cody Milligan were on the wings. Oh, what a great time they had that season with teammates including Joe Sullivan, Beau Ricketts, Ryan Chiasson, Colby Ryan, Max Levosky and Joseph Kaszupski. Their head coach was Pokey Reddick.

Now Cory and Zach will skate against each other  – three times this week beginning on Wednesday night.

Cory and the ECHL Manchester, N.H. Monarchs are off to take on Zach and the ECHL Norfolk, Va. Admirals with big games on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights at the Norfolk Scope Arena.

Cory this season has 8 goals, 11 assists for Manchester. Zach has 3 goals, 8 assists for Norfolk
