Nick Niedert(39) Mississippi RiverKings

8th year veteran goaltender Nick Niedert(39) was first reported last Spring to be returning to Danbury Whalers for another season after successfully guarding the net for them in 2010/2011.

But then just recently word has it that he will heading down south to play for the first year SPHL Mississippi RiverKings (formerly of the Central Hockey League, where the team spent 19 years). It will be their 20th season as a pro hockey organization.

He’s small at 5’8″ 185 lbs but plays aggressively and has shown flashes of brilliance at the single A level. Last season he led the league in a number of categories, including games and minutes played, saves and shutouts (a measly 2 in the FHL, a league know for more football-like scores).
