Nailers Finalize 2020 Roster
WHEELING — The Wheeling Nailers have announced their season-ending roster for the Summer of 2020. The roster consists of 15 players.
The season-ending rosters may include up to 20 players, but cannot include players who did not sign an ECHL contract during the 2019-20 season. From this list, teams are entitled to reserve the rights to a maximum of eight players, by extending a qualifying offer to them by June 30. No more than four of the eight can be veterans (260 regular season professional hockey games), players on open qualifying offers cannot be traded, and if a player signs a contract prior to June 30, that team does not have to extend a qualifying offer to said player. If a player does receive a qualifying offer, that offer remains open for acceptance until July 16.
Teams are now allowed to begin signing players for the 2020-21 season. Each signing must be approved by the ECHL, and will be announced by each respective club, following the approval of the transaction.
The Wheeling Nailers season-ending roster consists of the following players: D Jeremy Beaudry; F Cam Brown; F Alec Butcher; F Brad Drobot; D Chad Duchesne; D Marc-Olivier Duquette; F Carlos Fornaris; F Josh Holmstrom; D Steve Johnson; D Kyle McKenzie; D Andrew McLean; D Nick Minerva; G Jordan Ruby; D Craig Skudalski and F Willy Smith.
