WORCESTER, MA – The Worcester Railers Hockey Club (@RailersHC), proud ECHL (@ECHL) affiliate of the New York Islanders (@NYIslanders), and Railers HC General Manager and Head Coach Jamie Russell (@JamieRussell18) officially announced today that the club has signed forward Dwyer Tschantz (@Washer_Dwyer) to an ECHL contract.

Dwyer Tschantz joins the Worcester Railers HC after spending four seasons with Cornell University, where he skated in 66 games and amassed a total of five goals and 14 assists for a total of 19 points.

Before joining Cornell, the six-foot-six 220lb Wilmington, DE native played a season with the Indiana Ice of the USHL, putting up 24 goals, 20 assists, for a total of 44 points and a plus-31 rating in 52 games.
