Grogan Loaned to ECHL Tulsa

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. - Mississippi RiverKings goaltender Matt Grogan has been loaned to ECHL Tulsa, the team announced today. This is Grogan's second call-up of the season after spending time earlier in the year with ECHL Orlando.

Grogan, 27, is in his first season with the RiverKings and has made four starts and is 4-0-0 with a 2.74 goals-against average and a .891 save percentage. He started and won for the RiverKings last night as they defeated the Huntsville Havoc, 6-5, on Concorde Career College Ice at the Landers Center. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Gilbert, Az. native has appeared in four ECHL games all with Fort Wayne in the 2013-14 season following the completion of his senior year at UCONN.

The RiverKings return home on Saturday night, November 28 to face the Ice Bears once again for the annual Teddy Bear Toss benefiting Toys for Tots. Fans are encouraged to bring a new, plush toy to throw onto the ice when the RiverKings score their first goal. If the RiverKings collect over 2,000 bears, all fans in attendance will receive a free ticket to a December or January home game.
