Southaven, Miss. -- The Mississippi RiverKings signed forward Nolan Waker off waivers today from the Pensacola Ice Flyers. Terms of the contract were not released.

“We’re excited to have Nolan here in Southaven,” Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Derek Landmesser said. “He’s a good, young player who we think brings a lot to the table that can really help this team.”

In 13 games with the Ice Flyers this season, the Swift Current, Saskatoon native notched three assists and amassed 13 penalty minutes.

In order to make room for Waker, the RiverKings placed forward Trevor Karasiewicz on waivers. In 16 games with the RiverKings, the 5-11 forward had eight points (2G, 6A) and eight penalty minutes.
