CFN – You can add three more names to the ever-expanding River Kings roster.
Newly acquired centre Bobby Mazerolle, forward Patrick Lapostolle and goaltender Matthew Murphy have all come to terms with the team.
Mazerolle was acquired during the off-season in a deal that sent goaltender Fred Piché to Jonquière. Last season with the Marquis, the 26-year-old Latvian had four goals and six assists in 20 games. Mazerolle had 43 points in 42 games in his last full LNAH season back in 2010-11 with Sherbrooke.
Lapostolle was a depth player for the River Kings last season, appearing in 15 games for Cornwall. The 22-year-old had two assists.
The 25-year-old Murphy will back up all-star Loic Lacasse in goal. The 6-foot-2 Murphy appeared in one game last season for Saint-Georges. He previously played four seasons in the QJAHL. Murphy took the loss in goal for Cornwall last Friday night in Trois-Rivières. He made 21 saves for the River Kings.
The River Kings have a busy weekend ahead with a home-and-home versus the expansion Valleyfield Braves. The teams first meet Friday night in Valleyfield (8 p.m.) and the following evening, Mario Joly and the Braves visit Cornwall for a 7:30 p.m. start.
