Former Green Bay Gamblers forward Austin Czarnik signed an entry level NHL contract with the Boston Bruins today.
Playing an average of 40 games per year in his four seasons at Miami, Czarnik averaged 12 goals and 31 assists per year. Named team captain this season, he’s coming off a nine-goal, 36-assist senior season for the RedHawks. Prior to his time at Miami, Czarnik spent the 2010-11 season with the Gamblers helping the team reach the Clark Cup Finals for a second consecutive season. In 46 games that season, Czarnik registered 34 points (20 goals and 14 assists).
The Gamblers are home this Saturday as they host the Bloomington Thunder at the Resch Center for the team’s annual Autism Awareness Night. A portion of the proceeds from the night will benefit the Autism Society of Wisconsin.

Face-off is scheduled for 7:05pm. For more information on purchasing tickets call the Resch Center Box Office at 920-494-3401.
The Green Bay Gamblers and North Shore Bank raised $4,500.00 for the American Heart Association during the team’s annual American Heart Association Night on March 28th.
Money was raised through ticket proceeds, 50/50 raffle and tips collected from a celebrity waiter dinner.
The Gamblers want to thank Korren Jewitt – Senior Youth Marketing Director with the American Heart Association, presenting sponsor North Shore Bank, and the students and facility at the schools across Northeast Wisconsin who took part in the Jump Rope for Heart program.

Today the USHL named Green Bay GAmblers forward Marc Michaelis CCM Co-Forward of the Week.
Michaelis registered seven points (5g, 2a) to help the Gamblers win two of three contests during the week. He scored a goal in Wednesday’s 4-3 shootout loss to the Bloomington Thunder. Michaelis then had a career night as he scored four goals and dished out an assist in Friday’s 5-3 win against the Lincoln Stars. It was the first four-goal game in the USHL this season and first for a Gamblers player since Anders Lee did so in the 2010 playoffs. He scored the four goals in three different ways – power play (2), even strength, and shorthanded. His fourth goal was both the first shorthanded and first game-winning goal of his USHL career. The 19-year-old native of Mannheim, Germany now has 14 goals through 28 games this season with Green Bay.
Michaelis is committed to Minnesota State- Mankato.
