HELENA, MT – The Helena Bighorns have signed Dillon Mershon for the remainder of the season, Bighorns’ President, Mike Butters announced today.
Mershon joins the team from the Duluth Clydesdales of the Superior International Junior Hockey League (SIJHL), where he served as team captain. In 35 games with Duluth, Mershon tallied 8 goals to go with 14 assists. The 6’1”, 185 lb. native of Deer Park, WI plays both forward and defense and his versatility will come in handy, says Bighorns Head Coach, Scott Cunningham. “Dillon has a great amount of speed and he is a proven leader. We expect him to make an immediate impact.”
The Bighorns clinched a playoff spot with last night’s 10-1 win over Great Falls. Helena is at home to Missoula, Friday at the Helena Ice Arena. Game time is 7:35 PM.
Tickets are now on sale by contacting the Helena Bighorns Box Office at 457-2817.
