Former IceDigger joins team staff

The Alpena IceDiggers of the North American Hockey League announced Friday that former player Chris Lanciano will broadcast home games for the club on the B2 Network.

Lanciano played for the IceDiggers during their first season in Alpena (2005-2006). The Philadelphia native has lived in Alpena ever since his playing career ended.

"Chris was an important part of our team both on and off the ice our first year up here," said Alpena coach-GM Kenny Miller. "With him now as our broadcaster, I couldn't be happier."

This will be the 21-year-old's first season as a broadcaster and during home games, players that are out of the lineup will fill in as color commentators.

All 25 home games can be viewed on the Internet at for a fee of $6 per game.

Lanciano resides in Ossineke with his girlfriend, Jillian, 20.
