John Siemer Re-Signs for Third Season with Mayhem
MACON, GA - The Macon Mayhem re-signed one of its top scorers on Tuesday, as Director of Hockey Operations Leo Thomas announced the signing of forward John Siemer for the 2018-19 season.
"Siems has been here two years now, and I expect him to be a leader on this team," added Thomas. "He's a guy who can play a 200-foot game and show the younger guys how to play the right way. He has been one of our top forwards over the last two years, and I expect him to be one again this year."
Siemer, 26, returns to Macon for this third season with the team and third professional season. The speedy 5-9, 185-pound forward had his best professional season last year, tallying 20 goals, 32 assists and 52 points in 56 regular season games, and he also added five points in six playoff games.
"I'm excited to get started with Leo - working with him after practice and having him on the bench with us is always a comforting feeling," said Siemer. "He has a certain swag to him, so I know the team he builds for this year will be a good and entertaining one."
The Baldwin Park, California native has racked up 37 goals, 60 assists and 97 points in 104 career SPHL games, while also recording one point over 11 ECHL games in his two years professionally. Siemer spent three years playing NCAA Division I hockey at Northern Michigan University, notching 16 goals, 27 assists and 43 points in 85 games.
