Brodeur Departs Rivermen for Overseas Endeavors
Peoria, IL - The Peoria Rivermen announced earlier today that Rivermen goaltender Jeremy Brodeur has left the team to play hockey overseas in Hungary. Rivermen coach Jean-Guy Trudel announced the team has placed Brodeur on team suspension, meaning the Rivermen do retain the SPHL rights to him in the event Brodeur were to return to the league.
Brodeur, 23, made his SPHL debut with the club on October 26th, making 28 saves in a win over Evansville. A week later, he earned his first professional shutout by blanking the Macon Mayhem. In six starts with Peoria, Brodeur went 5-1-0 with a 1.85 goals against average (GAA), coupled with a .944 save percentage. Jeremy is the son of Hockey Hall of Fame member and three-time Stanley Cup Champion, Martin Brodeur.
Group, single game, and season tickets for Peoria's 38th season of professional hockey presented by Midwest Orthopaedic Center are on sale at the Toyota Box Office in the Peoria Civic Center, at the Rivermen office, located at 201 S.W. Jefferson Street, or over the phone at (309) 676-1040.
