SOUTHAVEN, Miss. – Mississippi RiverKings Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Derek Landmesser announced today that the team has acquired the rights to goaltender Dan McWhinney from the Huntsville Havoc for future considerations.    

McWhinney, 28, appeared in 47 games for the Havoc last season, tallying an 18-21-6 record with a 2.82 goals against average and a 91.8 save percentage before missing the post-season after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.

“I am very excited to acquire Dan,” Landmesser said. "I believe he will be a huge addition to our hockey team for the next season."

The 6-foot-1, 170-pound native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario enters his eighth season in 2013-14. McWhinney backstopped Huntsville to an SPHL President’s Cup Championship in 2010 and New Jersey to a Federal Hockey League championship in 2011.
