RiverKings Forwards Tedesco and Sutliffe Loaned to ECHL

SOUTHAVEN, Miss - The Mississippi RiverKings and Head Coach/Director of Hockey Operation Derek Landmesser announced the loan of forwards Daniel Tedesco and Derek Sutliffe to the ECHL.
Tedesco, 23, has five goals and eight assists in his rookie season with the RiverKings. He will join the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL, affiliates of the Dallas Stars (NHL) and is expected to play in their game Monday night versus the Utah Grizzlies. Tedesco played one game with the Pensacola Ice Flyers at the start of the season where he scored his first professional goal and was traded to Mississippi the following day.
Sutliffe, 24, in his first full season with the RiverKings has averaged over a point per game to this point in the season. A mainstay on the top line, along with Tedesco and Devin Mantha, Sutliffe has potted seven goals and added seven assists in his thirteen games played. He will join the Greenville Swamp Rabbits of the ECHL, affiliates of the New York Rangers (NHL).
The RiverKings' continued success on the ice is drawing the attention of the higher leagues as Tedesco and Sutliffe join Donald Olivieri and Vytal Cote as the most recent call-ups, all within the last two weeks. Corresponding roster moves in accordance to the call-ups will be announced as they happen.
The RiverKings continue the 2017-18 season this Friday when the Birmingham Bulls return to Planters Bank Ice at Landers Center. The RiverKings have knocked off Birmingham twice this season, once at home and once on the road.
