Rumble Returns To Peoria

Defenseman played 70 games across two seasons with Rivermen


Peoria, IL – The Peoria Rivermen announced earlier today that the club has signed defenseman Brandon Rumble to a standard professional contract (SPC). 


Rumble, 27, begins another tour of duty with Peoria after spending the bulk of last season in the ECHL, mostly with the Norfolk Admirals. The Ottawa, ONT native began the 2019-20 campaign with Norfolk, registering three assists in 15 games. 


Before the ECHL, Rumble skated in 60 games with the Rivermen during the 2017-18 season, including playoffs. He logged 21 assists and was a +19. Brandon began the following year with the Rivermen, playing in 10 games before being dealt to Pensacola, where he skated in two games prior to his call-up to the ECHL.


The Peoria Rivermen return home Thursday night to open up a five game homestand, beginning with three games in four nights against the Pensacola Ice Flyers.
