Curtis Megginson first to report to Mayhem camp

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Veteran defenseman Curtis Megginson committed this week to attend the  Macon Mayhem’s first training camp ahead of the team’s debut in October.

The team made the announcement in a release.

“He’s a veteran player who knows this league and that will be a huge help for our younger guys coming in,” coach Kevin Kerr said after the signing. “He’s a smart player and is very steady in his own zone.”

The 26-year old played for the Augusta RiverHawks (the franchise that transferred to Macon) from 2010-2013. Before that, he also played with the Bloomington Thunder and the Huntsville Havoc.

Megginson is actually from the same town as Kerr: North Bay, Ontario.

“It helps to know about him,” Megginson said. “It’s going to be fun to get things going in Macon. I’ve heard they have great fans and a good booster club. I know they want hockey back and that is a good atmosphere to be in.”

Megginson, a right hander who’s six feet tall and weighs 209 pounds, has appeared in 243 games in five seasons in the Southern Professional Hockey League, scoring 15 goals and 16 assists for 31 points. He has 115 career penalty minutes.

The Mayhem opens the season October 23 at the Centreplex.
