Peoria Rivermen General Manager Kevin McDonald announced today that the club has signed forward Blair Riley to a professional tryout
contract (PTO). Riley appeared in five
games with the Rivermen on his first PTO and was released on Thursday.
Riley, 25, joined Peoria from the
Las Vegas Wranglers (ECHL) on March 1 and collected two assists in his five
games with the Rivermen. In Las Vegas,
he has 35 points (17g, 18a) in 50 games. He has also seen action in four
games this year with the San Antonio Rampage between Dec. 29 and Jan. 2.
He scored in his first game with the Rampage.
A rookie, the 6-foot, 210-pound
winger appeared in three games last season with the Springfield Falcons after
completing a four-year career at Ferris State University. In 147 games at
the collegiate level, Riley accounted for 42 goals and 45 assists for 87 points
to accompany 262 penalty minutes.
