Di Salvo returns to RiverKings

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. - Mississippi RiverKings Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Derek Landmesser announced today that goaltender Peter Di Salvo has been returned from call-up to ECHL Adirondack.

Di Salvo, 25, appeared in five games during his most recent call-up where he split time between Allen and Adirondack. The Oakville, Ontario native posted a combined 2-1-0, with a 2.01 goals against average and a 91.2 save percentage. Prior to his promotion, the 6-foot, 196-pound netminder had a 9-3-2 record with a 2.12 goals against average and a 93.2 save percentage with the RiverKings in his third professional season.

To make room for Di Salvo's return, the RiverKings waived goaltender Spencer McLay. McLay, 23, made his lone appearance in last Tuesday's 5-1 loss in Louisiana.
