Boneyard Buzz: SGP Announce Season-Ending Roster

Today, the ECHL teams had to announce their season-ending rosters. The Savannah Ghost Pirates announced theirs later this afternoon. Each team is allowed to have up to 20 on their list. However, the Ghost Pirates only have 15. It is likely that they will have some familiar faces from the Henderson Silver Knights playing down again.

Here is their official 2022-23 Season-Ending Roster:

One Goaltender: Michael Bullion

Six Defensemen: Tristan Thompson, Nolan Valleau, Carter Long, Elijah Vilio, Will Riedell, Noah Carroll

Eight Forwards: Max Kaufman, Brent Pedersen, Cole Stallard, Vincent Marleau, Jett Jones, Ross Armour, Spencer Naas, Logan Drevitch

Michael Bullion got the most wins out of all six goaltenders to wear green this season. The Alaskan goalie came to the Lowcountry from the Norfolk Admirals mid-season and played a total of 1,836 minutes in net for Savannah.

Tristan Thompson got the Iron Man award by playing in each and every game for Savannah. He was the most offensive-defenseman on the team, as he scored 42 points and took 151 shots. 

Nolan Valleau came to the team from Orlando, playing 42 games wearing Ghost Pirate green. Elijah Vilio also came from Norfolk a little bit before Bullion did, making an appearance in 55 games. The British Columbia native had nine total points and 34 penalty minutes. Carter Long only played in 12 games this season, however, he took eight shots and scored off one of them. Will Riedell started the 2022-23 season playing for the Ghost Pirates; however, he was only dressed for 15 games. Noah Carroll came late in the season and only played in five games, however, he moved up to Henderson afterward to help them finish out their season. 

Max Kaufman, Brent Pedersen, Vincent Marleau, Spencer Naas, and Logan Drevitch were all valuable forwards to the Ghost Pirates’ inaugural season, as each of them was present for the vast majority of it. Pederson and Marleau were two out of the only three players to score a hat trick this season. Naas had a ton of incredible breakaway chances, and he scored on a lot of them. Drevitch would get goals, assists, and PIMs, and whenever he got knocked down, he would get right back up and hit the other guy much harder. Ross Armour and Jett Jones weren’t present for much of the season, however, they’ll be starting off the next one in Savannah. 

After a fantastic inaugural season, it can be expected that the next one for the Savannah Ghost Pirates will be an even better one. With many players returning that are familiar faces, as well as some Henderson players possibly returning, the SGP’s fans can rest assured that next season will be very fun and full of even more surprises and haunts.
