I used to watch these guys all the time. They were the Devils farm team, now they are the Hurricanes Farm team.

BECKET, Mass. - Three players and employees of the Albany River Rats were seriously injured this morning after their team bus slid in snow and rolled on the Massachusetts Turnpike just before 3:30 a.m., Massachusetts State Police said.
The injured people are a mix of players and team employees, Rats coach Jeff Daniels said, but declined to identify any of them until families can be contacted.
Police describe the injures as serious, but Daniels said they did not appear to be life threatening.
"We were very fortunate and lucky," Daniels said.
