When Jackson Hole Moose coach Sean Hannafin saw the Colorado Tugboats walk into the Snow King Sports and Events Center last weekend, he got a bit worried. The Tugboats are young. The Jackson Hole Moose aren’t getting any younger.

The Moose’s top player, Drew Akins, is 37 and has been out recently not feeling well. Goalie Nick Krauss is 36, and so is veteran forward A.J. Sanders, who injured his right foot blocking a shot the weekend before.
