HUNTSVILLE – After a year of playing overseas, forward Trevor Gerling will make his debut in an SPHL training camp with the Huntsville Havoc.

The Seattle native played last season with Lyon in the French Ice Hockey League and is currently wrapping up the season as the leading scorer for the Canberra Brave of the Australian Ice Hockey League, averaging better than two points per game.

"Trevor is an important signing for us this summer," said Havoc Head Coach Glenn Detulleo. "He brings skill, speed and -- most importantly -- leadership to our lineup. He should help fill the void left by the departure of some experienced forwards and will be an important part of our offense."

Gerling (6-0, 201) averaged better than a point per game last season in Lyon, scoring 20 goals and notching 28 assists in 41 games and leading his team to the French Cup championship. The previous season, he played for the Greenville  Swamp Rabbits and Norfolk Admirals in the ECHL.

"I wanted to come to Huntsville because of the success and reputation of the club," said Gerling. "It's hard to turn down the opportunity of playing with a championship club that is known to have one of the best arenas and fans in the league. I'm excited to join the team and be involved in the community."

After four seasons with the University of Connecticut in Storrs, where he played 124 games and recorded 64 points (33g, 31a), Gerling started his professional career in Scotland with the Edinburgh Capitals of the England Ice Hockey League in 2015. Over 52 games, he scored 27 goals and recorded 29 assists.

"I like to play a fast and skilled game," said Gerling, who turns 29 next week. "I want to be creative in the offensive zone and use speed to create time and space for my teammates. I've learned a lot playing overseas and I hope to use that experience to contribute to another successful playoffrun."

HUNTSVILLE – Huntsville Havoc Head Coach Glenn Detulleo has announced that Derek Perl will start his second professional season in training camp to help the team defend their President's Cup championship.

"Derek played his best hockey in the playoffs," said Detulleo. "I'm really looking forward to seeing his role expand and be a consistent pillar on ourD-corps."

Perl was named to the SPHL All-Rookie team at the end of the regular season, which saw the Etobicoke, Ontario, native score 26 points (5g, 21a), ranking him eighth among all league defensemen.

The 25-year-old added a powerplay goal and two assists in the playoffs to help the Havoc win the league championship.

"I'm excited to be back with the Havoc," said Perl. "Winning the cup last year was an amazing experience. I love the atmosphere the fans bring and look forward to defending the title in front of our dedicated fans."

Perl (5-11, 175) played collegiate hockey for Marian University in Fon du Lac, Wisconsin. The blue-liner played in 108 games for the Sabres, scoring 14 goals and recording 34 assists.

The defenseman joins Havoc returners Nolan Kaiser on the line and Mike DeLaVergne in net, announced earlier this month as returning for training camp in October.

Havoc sign Colton Wolter

HUNTSVILLE – Huntsville Havoc Head Coach Glenn Detulleo announced the team has signed rookie forward Colton Wolter to the team as the Havoc defend their SPHL President's Cup championship.

"We're looking forward to watching Colton compete at training camp," said Detulleo. "He's a well-rounded player who brings grit, tenacity and the ability to contribute offensively."

Wolter (5-9, 191) finished his senior season last year at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in NCAA Division III. Over his four-year career, the Fairbanks, Alaska, native played in 105 games for the Blugolds, scoring 21 goals and recording 37 assists.

"I am excited to join the winning tradition with the Havoc," said Wolter. "This is uncharted territory for me as I will be so far from home, but it's also an incredible opportunity. I'm ready to get to work and compete."

Wolter, 24, was named to the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference All-Conference Team last year before signing with SPHL's Mississippi RiverKings for a two-game tryout at the end of the regular season.

He joins playoff MVP Sy Nutkevitch, former RiverKing Ryan Salkeld, and the returning Tyler Piacentini on the Havoc front line when training camp starts in a few months.

HUNTSVILLE – Huntsville Havoc Head Coach Glenn Detulleo has announced forward Jack Ceglarski will return for his second year with the reigning President's Cup champions.

"We're excited to have Jack returning to help us in our quest to repeat," said Detulleo. "He has the chance to contribute in all situations and play a bigger role in our offense."

The Byfield, Massachusetts, native played 37 games with the Havoc last season, scoring 10 goals and recording 13 assists as a forward. Ceglarski (6-1, 186) earned SPHL Warrior Player of the Week honors on Nov. 7, 2017, by notching four points (2g, 2a) in an 8-3 win against the Fayetteville Marksmen, helping set a Havoc team record for scoring in the home opener.

It was only his fourth game playing for Huntsville.

"This is a premiere organization and coming back to don the jersey again is an honor," said Ceglarski. "We play in front of the best fans, not just in the SPHL, but in all of minor league hockey, and we're going to need all of them to help defend the cup!"

Ceglarski, who turned 26 last month, was also the team's first call-up last season. After only 15 games with the Havoc, he was loaned to the Reading (Pennsylvania) Royals of the ECHL for two months before returning to Huntsville to help the team bring home the SPHL President's Cup championship.

Ceglarski played four seasons at SUNY-Geneseo where he served as team captain his senior season. He recorded 73 points in 110 games with the Knights and finished his senior campaign with career-highs of 23 points and 18 assists.

Ceglarski joins fellow second-year forward Tyler Piacentini, playoff MVP Sy Nutkevitch and the recently announced Trevor Gerling on the Havoc training camp roster.

HUNTSVILLE – Huntsville Havoc Head Coach Glenn Detulleo has announced forward Zach Nieminen will get a crack at spending his rookie season in the Rocket City for the 2018-19 campaign.

The Ajax, Ontario, native briefly played with the Havoc at the end of last season, scoring a goal and two assists in three games.

"Zach made a strong impression when he joined us after college last season," said Detulleo. "He brings a good mix of size and skill, and we're looking forward to seeing his performance in training camp."

Nieminen (6-2, 194) recently completed his senior season with Buffalo State College in New York, where he tied the career record for most games played at the school with 106. During his first three years with Buffalo State, Nieminen (6-2, 194) played alongside former All-American and current Havoc goaltender Mike DeLaVergne.

The 24-year-old Nieminen recorded 66 points (31g, 35a) in his four years with the Bengals.

"Huntsville was a great learning experience last year," said Nieminen. "The coaches and players treated me like I had been with the team all season, and the arena and atmosphere is unbelievable. The fans take their hockey seriously and get to know each player, which makes it more fun to play in front of them. I'm excited to come back!"

He will join a loaded group of forwards in Havoc training camp, including returning players Jack Ceglarski, Tyler Piacentini, playoff MVP Sy Nutkevitch and the recently-announced Trevor Gerling.

HUNTSVILLE – The Huntsville Havoc held a free agent camp last weekend at the Wilcoxon Ice Complex where more than 40 unsigned players ran hockey drills and scrimmaged in front of fans and the coaching staff, trying to prove they had what it takes to join the reigning SPHL champions.

After the final scrimmage on Sunday, the Havoc extended invitations to Declan Conway, David Higgs and Michael Hails to join the team’s training camp in October.

“I'm really happy with how the weekend went,” said Havoc Head Coach Glenn Detulleo. “We invited three players that we felt separated themselves from the rest. We look forward to watching them compete in October for the chance to make our opening night roster.”

Conway (5-11, 178) played two seasons at forward with the club team at John Carroll University in University Heights, Ohio. As a member of the Blue Streaks, the Painsville, Ohio, native played in 33 games, scoring 23 goals and recording 16 assists. Last season, his team won the College Hockey Mid-America Conference championship. As a junior hockey player, the 22-year-old played 84 games, scoring 20 goals and notching 34 assists.

“I try to use my strengths of playing simple, but fast,” said Conway. “I believe I can make the right play and have the mindset to go strong with any opponent I play against.”

Hails (6-0, 185) spent the last four seasons as the goaltender for the club team at Lindenwood University in Saint Charles, Missouri. The Coldstream, British Columbia, native saw action in 66 games. In his senior season with the Lions, the 23-year-old had a goals-against average of 1.69 and saved 93.6 percent of the shots he faced, earning him second team all-league in the Central States Collegiate Hockey League.

“The coaching and support staff made the camp comfortable and welcoming, which allowed me to have fun while showcasing myself,” said Hails. “I look forward to returning this fall to build upon this opportunity.”

Higgs (6-3, 216) spent the last three seasons as a defenseman for Utah State University in North Logan, playing in 84 games while recording 26 goals and 70 assists. The Salt Lake City native played juniors in the Western States Hockey League and the Central Canada Hockey League, seeing action in 238 games, scoring 28 goals and notching 94 assists.             

Coach Detulleo was glad to lace up the skates with some players once again while seeing some familiar friendly faces.

“It was great to be at the rink to not only get back on the ice, but also see some of our loyal fans!”

HUNTSVILLE – Huntsville Havoc Head Coach Glenn Detulleo has announced that Kyle Sharkey will be back in a Havoc jersey for training camp to help defend the team’s President's Cup championship.

“Kyle played an important role on our team last season,” said Detulleo. “He has the versatility to play up and down the lineup and find ways to make big plays and produce offensively.”

The Moore, Oklahoma, native led all rookies on the squad last year with 36 points (15g, 21a), and contributed a pair of goals and assists en route to the SPHL title.

“I’m excited to come back to Huntsville to play in front of the greatest fans in the league,” said Sharkey, who turns 26 in September before camp begins. “Last year’s cup run was such an amazing experience and I’m looking forward to getting the season going and starting another journey for a championship!”

Sharkey (5-10, 174) played four seasons with the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point where he helped lead the Pointers to the 2016 NCAA Division III national championship. During his time at UW-SP, he scored 58 goals and recorded 75 assists in 115 games.

When Sharkey reports to camp, he joins fellow second-year Havoc forwards Tyler Piacentini and Jack Ceglarski, and rookie goaltender Max Milosek, who skated three seasons with Sharkey in college.

Defenseman Sikalis Returns for 2018-19 Season

Quote

HUNTSVILLE – Huntsville Havoc Head Coach Glenn Detulleo announced today that the team has re-signed defenseman Peter Sikalis.

“Having Peter sign to return this season is great news for the team,” said Detulleo. "As a rookie last year, he was a key contributor to our championship. With his mix of size, skill and skating we look forward to seeing him continue to develop his game and increase his work load.”

Sikalis played in 55 games last season for the Havoc, scoring five goals and notching 17 assists. The rookie was key in the Havoc’s run in the 2018 President’s Cup Playoffs, scoring the game-winning goal in overtime against the Macon Mayhem to send the team to the SPHL finals. 

“I’m extremely excited to be coming back to the Havoc,” said Sikalis. “Everyone in the organization does a great job creating a winning atmosphere and the fans are incredible.”

The Acton, Massachusetts, native played his collegiate hockey at St. Anselm College in Goffstown, New Hampshire. Over the course of 104 games with the Hawks, Sikalis (6-3, 205) scored 21 goals and recorded 24 assists. He was named Northeast-10 Conference Defender of the Year, First Team All-Northeast, Second Team All-New England Hockey, Northeast Conference Player of the Week, and the MVP of the Middlebury Holiday Classic.

HUNTSVILLE – The busy signing period for the Huntsville Havoc hockey team continues this week with Head Coach Glenn Detulleo announcing the inking of Kodi Schwarz, who started his professional career in Europe.

“We are thrilled to have Kodi sign with us,” said Detulleo. “With two years of pro hockey under his belt, we expect him to be a factor at both ends of the ice from day one.”

Schwarz, (5-11, 165) spent last season with the Bietigheim Steelers in the second division of German ice hockey. He led the team to the DEL2 league championship, playing in 45 games and recording 3 goals and 4 assists.

"I have never been to the deep south, so I’m looking forward it," said the Aldergrove, British Columbia, native. “I’ve heard nothing but good things about the fans and the organization. I hope to bring some poise and offense from the defensive zone and help the Havoc defend their championship!"

Schwarz, 22, started his pro career in 2016 with EC Salzberg II in Austria. He saw action in 21 games, scoring one goal and recording 15 assists.

When he enters training camp with Huntsville this fall, he will join returning Havoc defenders Nolan Kaiser and Derek Perl on the blue-line.

HUNTSVILLE – The Huntsville Havoc will have one of last year’s top rookies back in the lineup when training camp begins in October.

Huntsville Havoc Head Coach Glenn Detulleo has announced that forward Stephen Hrehoriak will return to the Rocket City to help defend the SPHL championship.

“We’re really excited to work with Stephen from the start of the season,” said Detulleo. “His mid-season addition to the club last year added speed, tenacity and scoring, which was key to our championship run. He was a seamless fit to our team culture and style of play.”

The Stittsville, Ontario, native initially joined the Havoc in a mid-season trade with the Pensacola Ice Flyers last year. Between the two teams, Hrehoriak (5-9, 185) played in 42 games his rookie season, tallying 17 goals and 15 assists. While he spent some time on loan to teams in the ECHL, he returned to Huntsville in time to make the playoff roster, where he scored four goals and four assists including the game-winner to clinch the championship series against the Peoria Rivermen.

“After our unbelievable playoff run, it’s great to have the opportunity to play in Huntsville again,” said Hrehoriak. “I hope to pick up where we left off, building on last season’s success, contributing where I can and providing energy to the lineup.

Hrehoriak, 25, played his collegiate hockey at Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania. From 2013 to 2017, he played in 112 games with the Lakers, scoring 14 goals and recording 12 assists.

He joins returning forwards Tyler Piacentini, Kyle Sharkey and SPHL playoffs MVP Sy Nutkevitch to work toward repeating as SPHL champions.

HUNTSVILLE – Havoc Head Coach Glenn Detulleo has announced that Pat Condon will join the team for training camp in his first year in the SPHL.

“Pat is the type of player that has the potential to compete for important minutes on day one of training camp,” said Detulleo. “He has the ability to drive offense from the back end which would complement our style of play very well.”

The Merrick, New York, native finished his collegiate career last spring with the State University of New York in Geneseo. In four years with the Knights, Condon played in 96 games, scoring 18 goals and recording 47 assists. 

“I’ve heard nothing but great things about how passionate and dedicated the fan base is,” said Condon. “I can’t wait to get the year going and hope I can contribute to the team and ultimately help the boys bring home another championship.”

Condon (6-2, 185), helped lead SUNY-Geneso to the SUNY Athletic Conference title his junior year. He closed his career by landing second team All-American honors by the American Hockey Coaches Association in his senior year.
