Casey Harris makes his hockey return!
Every member of the Port Huron community is familiar with the restaurant Casey's. It has been a staple of the community for the past twenty years and is one of the best places in town to grab a bite to eat. Before opening Casey's and moving to Port Huron, Casey Harris was a D1 hockey standout and signed by the Pittsburgh Penguins AHL team in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. He moved to Port Huron and played with the Port Huron Beacons, and when they moved to Roanoke, he had the chance to go with them, but he opted to stay in Port Huron to raise his family.
Casey was due to return a couple of seasons ago, but unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic delayed his return. The video documenting Harris's story and why he is returning to the game found its way to Jacksonville, Florida, which is making a 30 for 30 on his journey to his last game. They need one last piece of the story, and that is to play his final game.
Harris has become a key member of Port Huron, and Casey had one request for this game, and that is to sell out McMorran Place! Harris knows the talent on this team and has seen in the past when McMorran is sold out it's an incredible hockey atmosphere. Harris talked about the talent on the Prowlers, and he knows what this team is capable of and how far they can go once the playoffs begin.
