He'll be a top defenseman in this league and will play heavy minutes for us."Sneep split last season at the AHL level between the Texas Stars, Idaho's AHL affiliate, and the Peoria Rivermen.  In 31 games, he had six points (two goals, four assists) and a plus-6 rating.  He also skated in 29 games at the ECHL level with the Wheeling Nailers, picking up 15 points (three goals, 12 assists) and a plus-12 rating.The Minnesota native is the seventh defenseman to be added to Ralph's training-camp roster, joining James Isaacs, Dalton Reum, Mike Beck, Tyler Elbrecht, Colin Dueck and Connor Goggin.  Training camp opens in Boise in early October.Idaho opens the regular season on October 18 at Utah.  The team's home opener is Wednesday, October 23, at CenturyLink Arena in Boise against the San Francisco Bulls.Fans can still purchase season tickets for the 2013-14 season, with full-season packages beginning at just $275 per seat for all 36 home games.  Partial-season plans are also available.  Contact the team's front office at 208-383-0080 and ask to speak to an account executive for more information.
