STORM ADDS OLIVIERI AND ARNESON TO THE ROSTER!

Quote

The Quad City Storm announced today that the team has signed Philadelphia native Donald Olivieri and Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada native Bryan Arneson to a professional tryout agreement for the team’s October training camp.
Philadelphia native Donald Olivieri joins the Storm following a stint in the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) with the Rapid City Rush. Olivieri has also played with Mississippi Riverkings, Evansville Thunderbolts and Peoria Rivermen in the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) and with Missouri Mavericks and Norfolk Admirals in the ECHL. Olivieri stands at 6 foot and weighs in at 205 pounds and has proven he's a physical player who stands up for his team. Coach Dave Pszenyczny said, "Don is a strong offensive defense-men who is not afraid to throw the body.” “He has a heavy shot that makes teams really pay on the power play,” he added.
The Canadian born Bryan Arneson previously played in the ECHL with the Wheeling Nailers and in the SPHL with the Mississippi Riverkings. Arneson stands at 5'11” and weighs in at 180 pounds and has a scoring touching, having aced 16 goals last season with Mississippi. “Bryan is a gritty winger who get under the other team’s skin; opponents take notice when he is on the ice because of his hard hits, “ said new head coach Dave Pszenyczny.
The addition of Donald Olivieri and Bryan Arneson bring the Storm's training camp ledger to four players, which includes the previously announced players Nicola Levesque and Vladimir Nikiforov, both signed to professional tryout agreements earlier this month. The Quad City Storm are expected to open their training camp in early October prior to October 13’s preseason game against the Peoria Rivermen at Peoria's very own Carver Arena. The Storm's regular-season schedule is set to begin October 20 against the Peoria Rivermen at the TaxSlayer Center in Moline.

Shouldn't there be an established "North American Hockey Media Types Code Of Ethics" that invokes severe punishment for the author of any team press release containing a current reference to the phrase: "the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL)"? :beat:

The Quad-City Storm announced they signed goaltender Peter Di Salvo and forward Austin Hervey to professional tryout agreements Monday.

Di Salvo, 27, is entering his sixth professional season split between three leagues, the majority with the Southern Professional Hockey League.

Di Salvo, an Oakville, Ontario native split last season between the Fayetteville Marksmen, the Peoria Rivermen and the Macon Mayhem in the SPHL, with a 3.16 goals against average and a .896 save percentage in 35 games.

In 128 career SPHL games, Di Salvo is 73-35-11 with a 2.70 goals against average and a .906 save percentage. He's also played in 15 ECHL games in his career.

"Peter is a proven, veteran goalie who can steal a game for the team and win a championship in this league," head coach Dave Pszenyczny said. "He brings leadership and a growing mentality to the rink every day."

Hervey, 25, played in 55 games with the SPHL's Knoxville Ice Bears last season, scoring 12 goals and adding 15 assists while posting a minus-8 rating.

The Brighton, Michigan native played in five ECHL games in 2017, scoring one goal and adding one assist with the Indy Fuel.

Hervey is one of the six players the Storm selected in the SPHL expansion draft in June.

"Austin is one of the players we were adamant about getting in the expansion draft and is an intense power forward that brings size and a scorer's touch," Pszenyczny said.
