The Springfield Jr Blues, proud member of the North American Hockey League, adds to their outstanding tradition of player signing. Michael Covach and Matt Menta, dominant players for the Philadelphia Jr Flyers in the Tier 1 Elite League, signed tenders with the Blues this past week.

“We are proud to sign these player, they are two of the top players in the country and are line mates,” said Head Coach Joe Dibble. “Watching these two play together is always a pleasure.”

Covach, a power forward, so far in 33 games has 27 goals and 12 assists. His line mate, Menta, currently has 9 goals and 20 assists in the same amount of games.

“The impact on our future these two players will bring is extraordinary. I expect both to be top line guys and logging lots of minutes” says Dibble. “Both are Division 1 Caliber players if I have ever seen one”.
