TRANSACTION: Atlanta adds Joshua Boyer to forward group

DULUTH, GA - The Atlanta Gladiators announced on Wednesday that the club has signed forward Joshua Boyer to an ECHL contract. 

Boyer, 24, transitions to a career professional hockey following a two-year stint in the NAHL with the Fairbanks Ice Dogs and Brookings Blizzard, as well as two seasons in the USHL with the Madison Capitols and Sioux City Musketeers. Following his time in Sioux City, Boyer began his collegiate career, first with the University of Nebraska-Omaha, then with St. Lawrence University.

In 36 games with the University of Nebraska-Omaha, the native of Wasilla, Alaska posted five points (3G, 2A), 29 PIM, and a +3 rating. Following the shortened 2020-21 campaign, where Boyer only played five games with the Mavericks, the 6-3 center would transfer to St. Lawrence University, where he'd play the next three seasons. In 105 games with the Skating Saints, he'd serve as a productive presence down the middle, posting 24 points (11G, 13A). Boyer also served as the captain of the club during the 2023-24 campaign. 

In addition, the Gladiators have announced they have released forwards Spencer Kennedy and Seth Benson. Kennedy, 23, appeared in 21 games with Atlanta, accumulating 77 penalty minutes. Benson, 25, suited up in five games for Atlanta, recording one goal and a -5 rating. 

Atlanta returns to action on Friday and Saturday night, for a back-to-back, out-of-division set with the Norfolk Admirals on the road. On Friday it's a 7:05 puck drop, while on Saturday, the action begins at 6:05PM. Be sure to catch it all live on Flo Hockey and MixLR!
