TUCSON, AZ – The Tucson Roadrunners, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, announced today that the Roadrunners have signed forward Domenic Alberga of the Norfolk Admirals (ECHL) to a professional tryout.

The 6-foot-1, 209-pound native of Maple, ON has registered 10 goals and 12 assists for a total of 22 points in 22 games with Norfolk, Tucson’s ECHL affiliate this season. Through parts of five seasons in the ECHL, Alberga has recorded a total of 49 goals and 66 assists for a total of 115 points in 216 games.
After sweeping a weekend in California, taking down both Stockton and Bakersfield respectively, the Roadrunners look to continue their winning ways against one of the hottest team in the American Hockey League. Currently holding a record of 19-9-3-1 and sitting at second place in the Pacific Division, the Roadrunners will play eight of their next 10 games at home through February 2.
