RiverKings Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Derek Landmesser also announced today that the team has signed forward Corey Leivermann and defenseman Dmitry Peremikin.

Delisle, 24, was loaned to the Bakersfield Condors Jan. 6 and then he signed with the Idaho Steelheads Jan. 23. He played 10 games in the ECHL, five for both teams, but did not register a point. The Arden Hills, Minnesota native played in 10 games with the RiverKings from Dec. 12-Jan. 4 and he had six points (5g, 1a).

Prior to that he played at Minnesota State University - Mankato, playing in 42 games over 2+ seasons. Leivermann played juniors with the Fargo Force in the USHL.
