  8. News Release PENSACOLA, Fla. (October 18, 2017) - The Pensacola Ice Flyers have acquired the playing rights of veteran forward Trever Hertz from the Mississippi RiverKings in exchange for future considerations. "I am eager to be a part of the Ice Flyers organization," stated Hertz. "I have heard nothing but great things about the city of Pensacola and the fan base we have here." The 6\'1", 194-lb. forward is a native of Jaffray, BC, Canada. Hertz has played the last three seasons with the SPHL. In his first year, he played for the Fayetteville FireAntz (currently Fayetteville Marksmen), where he scored 17 goals and 17 assists for a total of 34 points in 56 games. The last two seasons he spent with the Knoxville Ice Bears where he netted 28 goals and 56 assists, totaling 84 points in 106 games. Before playing pro, Hertz played four years at NCAA Division III Utica College in 104 games, where he amassed 44 goals and 58 assists for a total of 102 points. For his senior season, he was named captain.

  10. Pensacola Ice Flyers come to town Friday, while Huntsville Havoc follow up Saturday MACON, GA- The Macon Mayhem open up their season at home this weekend with the Pensacola Ice Flyers on Friday and the Huntsville Havoc on Saturday. The team will be celebrating last year's championship season by raising their championship banners and presenting team and staff members with their championship rings on Friday night. They will also be wearing specialty championship jerseys for both games, with a jersey auction immediately following the game on Saturday night. ... PENSACOLA ICE FLYERS PREVIEW 2016-17 Record and Results: 62 points (27-21-8), Lost in Semi-Final 2-0 vs. Macon Mayhem Top Returning Scorer: Josh Cousineau and Nathan Bruyere (24 points in 2016-17) It's a new look for the Pensacola Ice Flyers this season. Former Fayetteville Head Coach Jeff Bes has taken the helm in Pensacola, and he tries to rebuild and retool a team that was one of the final four teams in the playoffs last season. The top six scorers from last year's team have moved on or been traded, as the team looks to take on a new identity. The big move of the offseason for Pensacola was the trade that sent Massimo Lamacchia and Brad Bourke to the Fayetteville Marksmen and brought reigning SPHL Most Valuable Player Sean Bonar to the Ice Flyers. After being release from his try-out with the ECHL's Fort Wayne Komets, Bonar will take over as the starting goaltender for this young Ice Flyers team. HUNTSVILLE HAVOC PREVIEW 2016-17 Record and Results: 74 points (34-16-6), Lost in Semi-Final 2-1 vs. Peoria Rivermen Top Returning Scorer: Sy Nutkevitch (50 points in 2016-17) The Huntsville Havoc return six players from a very talented group that finished fourth in the regular season last year. Forward Sy Nutkevitch, defenseman Nolan Kaiser, and defenseman Stuart Stefan headline the group of starters returning. Head Coach Glenn Detulleo was busy recruiting out of the college ranks this summer, signing 10 collegiate players to the team's training camp roster. Huntsville lost both goaltenders Adam Courchaine and Tyler Steel, but they did a good job replacing them with experienced professional goaltenders. The Havoc signed former ECHL goaltender Keegan Asmundson to be the team's starter and also signed Mike DeLaVergne, who played four games for the Macon Mayhem last season. ... - SPHL Macon Mayhem View the full article
  11. News Release Despite getting off to a hot start, the RiverKings dropped their only exhibition matchup this season, falling to the Havoc 5-2. In front of a matinee crowd, the RiverKings took to Planters Bank Ice at Landers Center, and it only took 1:20 for the RiverKings to open the scoring for the 2017-18 season. Rookie Artur Drindrohzhik expertly tipped a shot from Ralfs Grinbergs, a scoring play was a direct result of hustle and constant pressure by the RiverKings forecheck. As the forwards began working the puck down low, the points opened up, and the puck landed on the stick of Latvian native Kristaps Bazevics. Bazevics, who just joined the team on Friday as part of an amateur tryout, found his defense partner Grinbergs along the blue line, who then rifled a laser-like snapshot that was expertly tipped by Drindrozhik past the Havoc goaltender. RiverKings continued their strong play, and it was the returning players who helped the RiverKings strike next when on the power play Devin Mantha showed why he's been such a formidable scorer in the SPHL for the last five seasons. At the 8:46 mark of the first period, Stuart Stefan was sent to the box for slashing, and it only took Mantha and the RiverKings 56 seconds to increase their lead 2-0. Grinbergs, doing everything he could to move the puck down low found Mantha settling in the high slot when Mantha blasted a shot from about 30 feet away past the outstretched hand of goaltender Keegan Asmundson. While the RiverKings would convert on their first power play of the day, it would be their only conversion in 9 attempts during the game. Huntsville, mirroring the RiverKings, would also score on their first power play opportunity. Nearing the end of the first period, Devin Mantha got called for slashing and sent to the penalty box with 3:30 to go in the opening frame. After exactly one minute and 30 seconds, the Havoc notched their goal with exactly 2:00 on the game clock. Kyle Sharkey, a returning player from last season's roster for the Havoc, would receive cross-crease pass and beat RiverKings goaltender Jared Rutledge. Huntsville would continue to keep the pressure up in the second period, despite taking a load of penalties. Midway through the second period, in an attempt to see his other goalie prospects in action, Coach Derek Landmesser made a change and brought in Cody Karpinski. Rutledge skated off having seen 14 shots and allowing one goal. Only one minute and seven seconds into the goalie switch, Havoc forward Alex Bodden rifled a shot that hit the crossbar and went directly down. Initially waved off, the play came to an end due to a RiverKings icing violation. Referees conferred and deemed that Bodden's shot did cross the goal line, tying the game at 2. The third period was perhaps the cruelest to the RiverKings as they saw the Havoc put up the go-ahead goal early in the period. Continuing his strong night, Bodden tallied his second goal at the 18:41 mark, only 19 seconds into the period. His wrist shot taken just outside the slot squeezed through Karpinski's torso and blocker arm, giving Bodden two goals on the day and the Havoc the lead. It was only two and a half minutes before Jack Ceglarski would add an insurance goal for the Havoc when he and his forward partner Kyle Sharkey played a passing game reminiscent of tic-tac-toe in front of Jared Karpinski, pulling him out of position and beating him glove side. Ceglarski would join teammate Alex Bodden as multi-goal scorers only 3 minutes later when he and Sharkey hooked up for a cross-crease connection and catapulted the Havoc to a 5-2 lead. ... - SPHL Mississippi RiverKings View the full article
  12. MACON, GA- The Macon Mayhem scored goals in all three periods in tonight's preseason 5-2 win over the Fayetteville Marksmen. HOW IT HAPPENED The Mayhem got the hot start in this game, as John Gustafsson scored his second goal of the preseason on a wrist shot over the right shoulder of Fayetteville goaltender Matt Zenzola. Just a couple minutes later, the Marksmen answered with a goal from Travis Jeke. Macon would get the lead once again in the period, however. Jamie Hill sent a saucer pass to John Siemer, who deked Zenzola and snuck it past his left pad to give the Mayhem the 2-1 lead. Only one goal was scored in the second period, which came on the power play off the stick of Dennis Sicard. He took the original shot and was able to follow up his own shot to put the rebound home. Macon was able to get an insurance goal early in the third period. Stephen Pierog found the puck off the back boards and tucked it past Fayetteville goaltender Peter Di Salvo. After the Marksmen answered, Dylan Denomme was able to put the game away with a top-shelf goal. He was the recipient of a nice passing play with Pierog and Stathis Soumelidis for the final goal of the 5-2 Mayhem win. ... - SPHL Macon Mayhem View the full article
