ROANOKE, VA. – The Rail Yard Dawgs announced on Thursday that defenseman Dillon Hill has returned from his call-up to the ECHL’s Fort Wayne Komets.

Hill played in seven games for Roanoke earlier this season after signing with the team on November 23, tallying one assist and four penalty minutes. The six-foot-three defenseman was called up on December 28 to Fort Wayne, where he played in 10 games and recorded 10 penalty minutes and a minus-one plus/minus rating. Before this season, the Ontario native played three games in the FPHL for the Watertown Wolves at the end of the 2019-2020 season, where Hill recorded two assists, six penalty minutes, and a plus-four rating before COVID-19 halted the season.

The Rail Yard Dawgs are on the road this weekend to face the Fayetteville Marksmen in a two-game series. Friday night’s game will be shown at 202 Social House as part of the Bud Light Watch Party Series. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. EST, but doors will open one hour early for the event.
