RIVERMEN WELCOME BACK TOP SCORER; ADD TWO

Rivermen head coach Jean-Guy Trudel announced Tuesday that high-scoring center Garrett Vermeersch, who led the team in points last season, has been re-signed for the 2014-15 SPHL season. In addition, Steve Morra and Nick Schneider have also been added.

Illinois Pro Sports (owner of the Peoria Rivermen) is proud to be a business partner of the Chicago Blackhawks for the second straight season. “We want to take a page out of the Blackhawks’ book and use their expertise to build and restore the excitement of professional hockey back in central Illinois," Rivermen co-owner Bart Rogers said. Founded in 1926, the Blackhawks are an “Original Six” National Hockey League franchise.
