ROANOKE, Va. – The Rail Yard Dawgs announced Monday that forward Spencer Kennedy and defenseman Michael Greco have been added to the training camp roster for the 2023-2024 season.
Kennedy joined the Dawgs last January after playing two seasons at Portage College (ACAC) in Alberta. The six-foot-six winger instantly made his presence felt, leading the team with eight fighting majors in just 19 games. Kennedy tallied three goals, 131 penalty minutes, and a plus-two rating in his rookie season for Roanoke. The Lethbridge, Alberta native will start the season in training camp with the ECHL’s Reading Royals.
Greco signs with the Dawgs ahead of his fourth season in professional hockey. The six-foot-two defenseman played his first two seasons for Ånge IK in Sweden (Division II), notching a combined eight goals, 20 assists, and 152 penalty minutes. The Orillia, Ontario native came back stateside last season with the Columbus River Dragons of the FPHL, tallying 10 goals, 21 assists, and 224 penalty minutes alongside fellow Dawgs camp invitee Jacob Kelly.
