After failing to score in a loss to Tulsa Tuesday night, the Odessa Jackalopes look to address that issue by welcoming a familiar face back to the team.
The Jacks announced the signing of veteran center Mike Rutter on Thursday.
Rutts comes out of retirement to rejoin the Jacks for his sixth season with the club.
Last year, Rutter was selected to the CHL All Star Team as he moved his way up the Jackalopes record books.
He is just five games away from playing his three hundredth with Odessa, and sits second in points with 296.
For Coach Paul Gillis the addition addresses an immediate need.
