Rivermen Submit Sunday Roster Cuts

Four players trimmed from roster


Peoria, IL- Peoria Rivermen head coach Jean-Guy Trudel announced four roster cuts Sunday afternoon as the SPHL deadline required teams to be at no more than 22 players. Goaltender Brody Claeys, defenseman Oleg Shipitsyn, and forwards Trent Durocher and Jon Buttitta have been released from Rivermen training camp.


All four players skated in Saturday’s 4-2 preseason loss to Quad City. Durocher and Buttitta each registered shots on goal, while Shipitsyn was credited with an assist on a goal by Zach Nieminen. Claeys played the entirety of Saturday’s game, stopping 27 of 31 shots. 


Monday is an off day for the team. Training camp resumes with practice Tuesday morning at the Peoria Civic Center. All SPHL teams are required to submit their official 19 man roster Wednesday afternoon in advance of Saturday’s regular season opener against the Storm.
