The Rail Yard Dawgs announced on Friday that Henry Dill would return for Roanoke’s training camp starting on October 9.

Dill played 24 combined regular season games during the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 seasons for the Rail Yard Dawgs. A native of Columbus, Ohio, the six-foot-two goaltender registered an 8-8-0 record during his time with Roanoke, tallying a .917 save percentage and 2.72 goals allowed average in the 2019-2020 season. Last season, Dill did not appear in a professional game, but Coach Dan Bremner is excited to have the talented goalie back in the Star City.

“Dill was a big part of our team turning things around in the 2019-2020 season,” said Coach Bremner about Dill. “He is a great teammate and part of the ‘glue’ within the locker room. Dill is a competitor who always elevates his game to meet the challenge.”

The Rail Yard Dawgs also announced their 2021-2022 season Training Camp schedule. All practices during Training Camp will be held at Lancerlot Sports Complex in Vinton, and will be open to the public to attend.
