"I have heard great things about coach Leo and the organization from Dan (Echeverri)," explained Chemello.
"This is my first time playing hockey in North America since graduating college. It is a step I have always wanted to take; coming from the club level we don't always get the same chances. I am thankful for Coach Leo and the Mayhem Organization for giving me this opportunity. I can't wait to get to Macon and start to be a part of a great culture and organization".
Cody Brown is a great skater with some good offensive abilities. I look forward to watching Cody battle in camp and prove that he is ready to make an impact for our team" explained Thomas.
