WORCESTER RAILERS HC RE-SIGN DEFENSEMAN MYLES MCGURTY FOR 2022-23 SEASON

McGurty returns for third season with Railers

WORCESTER, Mass. – The Worcester Railers Hockey Club (@RailersHC), proud ECHL (@ECHL) affiliate of the New York Islanders (@NYIslanders), and General Manager and Head Coach Jordan Lavallee-Smotherman  announced today that the club has re-signed defenseman Myles McGurty to an ECHL contract for the 2022-23 season.

McGurty, 28, enters his fourth professional season after recording 10 points (1G, 9A) in 60 games while finishing fourth on the Railers with a +8 rating. The 6-foot-2, 190lb defenseman was acquired by the Railers from the Rapid City Rush on February 18, 2020. He went on to play nine games for Worcester, tallying two points (1G, 1A). At the time McGurty was acquired from the Rush, he had played 49 games –  the most by any player on the team – registering 19 points (1G, 18A). Over his first three professional seasons he has skated in 143 career ECHL games accumulating 35 points (3G, 32A). Prior to turning pro, the Weehawken, NJ native spent parts of five seasons at Dalhousie University in Halifax where he played 101 games amassing 41 points (8G, 33A).

“Myles battled hard through a long season for us last year and finished the year playing his best hockey,” Lavallee-Smotherman said. “He fought through an injury when we were short numbers and played huge minutes at the most important moments of games. I’m excited to have him back and see his game take off right where it left off.”

The Railers have announced two players officially signed for the 2022-23 season as Myles McGurty joins Liam Coughlin as the two signees. More announcements are expected over the next few weeks.
