Warriors acquire Dery from Corpus Christi

Michael Dery will continue his NAHL career next season in Michigan after being dealt to the Michigan Warriors in exchange for Mike Economos.

As a rookie forward last season with the Corpus Christi IceRays, Dery posted eight goals and 10 assists in 47 games. He will join a Warriors' squad that made the NAHL playoffs in the North Division, but lost to the Port Huron Fighting Falcons in four games in the divisional playoff round.

“We wish Mike the best of luck next season and appreciate all his hard work and dedication he brought to our team last season,” said IceRays' head coach Justin Quenneville. “He will now have an opportunity to play in his home state and for a great organization as well.”

Economos, also a forward, notched eight goals and assisted nine others in 51 games played while picking up 57 penalty minutes with the Warriors last season.
