Fermoyle retires from Central Hockey League
[TOPEKA, KS.] - The Topeka Tarantulas of the Central Hockey League (CHL) announced today that defenseman Andy Fermoyle has retired from the CHL.
Fermoyle, a 62 202 pound defenseman from Warroad, Minnesota played in 36 games this season for the Tarantulas. In those games, he tallied 6 points and 41 penalty minutes.
Andy came to me and told me this was his last season of professional hockey. He [Andy] wanted to go home to his wife and family in the Quad City area. Head Coach Joe Coombs continued, We respect Andys effort this season and granted his wish of wanting to return home. This is a huge loss to our organization and Andy will be missed.
