Rapid City Rush
Joey Sides comes to the Rush organization by virtue of a trade for future considerations with the Kalamazoo Wings. The 5’11”, 185-pound forward enters his third season in the ECHL after having played for the Colorado Eagles for two seasons before sitting out last year. In his last season in Loveland, Sides suited up 44 times with the Eagles, scoring 21 goals with 19 assists for 40 points, just shy of a point-per-game pace.
