RiverKings Forward Matt Harrington Loaned to ECHL

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. - The RiverKings and Head Coach/Director of Hockey Ops Derek Landmesser have announced the loan of forward Matt Harrington to the Wheeling Nailers of the ECHL. 

Harrington, 27, has played 262 games with the RiverKings since joining the team in 2012-13 and is the team's longest-tenured player. His loan to Wheeling marks the second time he's suited up for the Nailers, his first coming in 2014 where he played four games for the Pittsburgh Penguins affiliates. This is the fourth loan of Harrington's career, including his first stop in West Virginia, a stint with the Alaska Aces in 2014-15 and most recently, a loan to the Florida Everblades last season.

In 22 career games in the ECHL, the North Port, FL native has registered five points by way of two goals and three assists. In 36 games with the RiverKings in 2017-18, Harrington has netted six goals and assisted on 10 others.
