RiverKings get Thomas back from ECHL Fort Wayne

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. - Mississippi RiverKings Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Derek Landmesser announced today that Captain Leo Thomas has been returned from call-up to ECHL Fort Wayne.

Thomas, 34, is in his third season with the RiverKings and 13th as a professional. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound forward has 12 points (6G, 6A) in 17 games with the RiverKings so far this season. In seven games with Fort Wayne, the Toronto, Ontario native had one assist.

To make room for Thomas, the RiverKings placed forward Michael Beaudry on waivers. Beaudry, 23, had four goals and seven assists with the RiverKings in 33 games.

The RiverKings return to Concorde Career College Ice at the Landers Center tonight for the annual Pink in the Rink. The RiverKings will wear specialty pink jerseys to be auctioned off after the game to benefit the RiverKings ReachOut Fund. The RiverKings will also donate $2 of every ticket purchased by fans wearing pink to WINGS Supportive Care.
