Barons Season Coverage
The Unofficial Joel Prpic Website
Since Joel is currently not on an active roster we have decided that we will be covering each game of the Barons ... check back the day after a game for an update to this page.

October 12, 2002 (Season Opener) vs. Grand Rapids Griffins
The Barons won their season opener in Michigan by a score of 6-4.  Things were looking bleak for the Barons heading into the 3rd period down by a score of 4-2.  But 4 unaswered goals in the third period lead the team to a win.  The first goal of the third period came from Wiseman.  The second and game tying goal came from Kraft.  The third and game winning goal was a short hander from Nelson.  The fourth and nail in the coffin goal came from Miroslav Zalesak with 2:33 left in the third period.  In one other note Jesse Fibiger was hit in the face by a puck as he exited from the penalty box and was taken off the ice for medical examination.
