RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Rapid City Rush announced that defensemen Kenton Helgesen and Tyson Helgesen have each been signed to contracts to return to Rapid City for the 2022-23 season.

Kenton returns for his second season with the Rush, and his seventh as a professional. During the 2021-22 season, he matched a career-high with 23 points (7g-16a) over 49 games. Kenton was named the 13th captain in team history prior to the season, and his seven goals were a new career high.

A 2012 seventh-round draft pick of the Anaheim Ducks, Kenton has appeared in 163 ECHL games during his career.

Tyson signed with the Rush in March of 2022 following the conclusion of his collegiate career at Mount Royal University in Calgary. He appeared in 15 games for Rapid City and recorded five points (1g-4a).

Tyson played for Rush head coach Scott Burt for four seasons when Burt was the assistant coach for the Spokane Chiefs of the Western Hockey League. He was Spokane’s captain for the final two seasons of his junior career.
