FORMER NHL PLAYER RILEY COTE TO SUIT UP FOR THE HAT TRICKS ON SUNDAY
DANBURY, CT – Former NHL enforcer, Riley Cote, will play for the Hat Tricks on Sunday when they visit the Delaware Thunder.
Cote played in 156 games for the Philadelphia Flyers from 2006 to 2010. Over those 156 games, Cote compiled 411 penalty minutes along with seven points.
“Riley is a good friend, said head coach Dave MacIsaac. “He didn’t hesitate when I reached out to see if he would play."
“He embodies what it means to play hockey in Danbury and we’re excited to have him on Sunday.”
After retiring from the NHL, Cote spent seven seasons as an assistant coach with the Adirondack/Lehigh Valley Phantoms (AHL).
Just like MacIsaac, Cote is a Calder Cup Champion with the Philadelphia Phantoms. Cote was a part of the 2005 Calder Cup Champion Phantoms, playing alongside players like Patrick Sharp, Jeff Carter and Todd Fedoruk.
Cote will join the Hat Tricks for their final game of their four-game road trip on Sunday in Delaware.
Danbury returns home on Friday, Dec. 3rd when they host the same Thunder team. Get tickets at danburyhattricks.com/tickets.
