RiverKings sign rookie Fox, place Pinsler on IR

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. - Mississippi RiverKings Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Derek Landmesser announced today that the team has signed rookie forward Dillan Fox to a contract. Terms and conditions were not released.

Fox, 24, joins the RiverKings after completing his collegiate career at State College of New York - Plattsburgh where he played one season as a teammate of current RiverKing assistant captain Mike Grace. In his senior season, 5-foot-11, 185-pound forward was second on the team in scoring with 22 points (9G, 13A) in 26 games. Throughout his four-year career, the Hummelstown, Pennsylvania native tallied 30 goals and 46 assists in 96 games.

Fox will be in the lineup tonight as the RiverKings take on Huntsville. He will wear number 4.

Fox's signing fills the roster spot left vacant after the team placed forward Sam Pinsler on the injured reserve. Pinsler, 24 appeared in three games with the RiverKings before his injury.
