Summer Signings – September
Our Two Cents
The defending champs have kept most of their core players from last season. Can Passingham emerge as a true starter?
Like the Mayhem, the Rivermen are reloaded for another Cup run with plenty of returnees and quality signings.
On paper, the Havoc are loaded in net with ECHL’er Keegan Asmundson as the front-runner for opening night netminder.
Who will play in front of Tyler Green? Currently. the RiverKings have only one defensemen signed who’s expected in camp.
True, the Bolts finished at the bottom last season, but there’s plenty of experience at Jeff Pyle’s disposal this year.
Plenty of former Cottonmouths moved to Birmingham to play for Jamey Hicks, including playoff sensation Mavric Parks.
Nick Mazzolini got a decent deal for RiverKings goalie Peter Di Salvo, but the Marksmen still have a Thompson-sized hole to fill.
With Travis Armstrong possible to wind up in ECHL Indy and Jackson Brewer & Riley Spraggs still unsigned, plenty of slots remain to be filled.
The first year of the Jeff Carr era in Knoxville is looking like a complete rebuild, with Berkley Scott and Danny Cesarz currently the lone returnees.
Only five announced signings for the Ice Flyers so far, featuring the re-signings of Josh Cousineau and Stephen Hrehoriak.
