Leading Goal Scorer Dion Returns to Rivermen Attack

Veteran winger led Peoria with 24 tallies in 48 games during 2016-17

Peoria, IL – The Peoria Rivermen announced today that the team has inked veteran winger Cody Dion to a training camp deal prior to the 2017-18 season. Dion returns to the Rivermen after leading the team with 24 goals in just 48 games last season.

Dion, 27, finished the 2016-17 regular season second on the Rivermen roster with 39 total points, and his seven power-play goals and six game-winners were also team highs. The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder added five goals in seven postseason contests, one shy of the league lead for the Presidents Cup Playoffs.

“Getting Cody back this year is huge for our offense” said Rivermen head coach Jean-Guy Trudel. “He’s so effective at using his big body to create traffic in front of the opposing net at even strength and on the power play, and his leadership presence on and off the ice will be big for us as we move forward in our pursuit of a championship this season.”

Playoff Leader Gorman Returns to Peoria for Sophomore Season

August 7, 2017 - 05:10 pm

Brad Kupiec

Rookie paced SPHL with 11 points in 7 postseason contests

Peoria, IL – The Peoria Rivermen announced today that the team has signed winger Connor Gorman to a professional tryout contract for Peoria’s 2017 training camp. Gorman returns to the Rivermen after leading the league with 11 points in seven playoff contests last season to help Peoria reach the President’s Cup Finals in his rookie campaign.

Gorman, 24, spent last season entirely with the Rivermen, skating in a team-high 55 games, and his 22 goals were two shy of the team lead. The Shrewsbury, MA native proceeded to notch six goals and five assists in seven postseason contests, leading the league in goals and total points for the playoffs as Peoria advanced to the President’s Cup Finals for the second straight season.

“Getting Gorms back will be big for our offense,” said Rivermen head coach Jean-Guy Trudel. “He worked hard all season and was our most improved player, he’s a high-motor guy at both ends of the ice and he’s not afraid to go to the dirty areas and score some greasy goals.”

Gorman joins wingers Mike Gurtler and Cody Dion, defensemen Ben Oskroba, Kevin Kirisits, and Kyle LeBrun, and goaltender Spencer Bacon on Peoria’s training camp ledger. ...

Rivermen Add Witzel to Training Camp Roster

Center finished 2016-17 with 6 points in 7 games for Peoria

Peoria, IL – The Peoria Rivermen announced today that the team has signed center Eric Witzel to a professional tryout deal for this October’s training camp. Witzel, 24, began his first full pro season in the Federal Hockey League last year before playing in 17 SPHL games for Huntsville and 7 more with the Rivermen, additionally skating in five of Peoria’s seven postseason tilts.

The Cumberland, Ontario native finished his collegiate career with SUNY-Canton in 2015-16, and proceeded to play six games for SPHL Louisiana and 18 more for the FHL’s Dayton Demolition. Last season, the 5-foot-10 185-pounder played in 22 FHL games for Danville, notching nine goals and 15 assists, earning a call-up to SPHL Huntsville. Witzel was claimed from waivers by the Rivermen in late March after being released by the Havoc. Between Peoria and Huntsville last year, Witzel played in 24 regular-season contests, scoring eight goals and assisting on nine others. ...
