RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Rapid City Rush, ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Calgary Flames, announced the return of third-year forward Brett Gravelle for the 2023-24 season. 

Gravelle returned to the Rush for a second season after a thrilling rookie campaign to launch his professional hockey career. Despite suffering injury at the start and end of the season, he logged 50 games of action, notching 32 points (13g-19a).

A native of Forest Lake, Minnesota, Gravelle, 27, enters his third season as a member of the Rush organization. Since being claimed off of waivers from the Iowa Heartlanders in the 2021-22 campaign, Gravelle has played 117 games, earning 86 points (40g-46a) with Rapid City. As a member of the Rush, he finished his rookie season in 2021-22 as the second-leading scorer on the team with 57 points (29g-28a), a point total and a goal mark that were fourth and tied for second-most, respectively, amongst all ECHL rookies. Additionally, Gravelle added 13 points (3g-10a) in 11 postseason games with the Rush. He has also suited up for the Southern Professional Hockey League’s Quad City Storm and the Federal Prospect Hockey League’s Elmira Enforcers.

Prior to turning pro, Gravelle played four seasons of college hockey with the University of St. Thomas, earning 113 points in 102 games. As a Tommy, he was a three-time MIAC All-Conference Team selection, 2017 MIAC All-Rookie Team selection, and captained the Tommies to a 2020 MIAC Conference Championship.
