Forward Dustin Gazley Loaned by Hershey to Reading

Reading, PA – The Reading Royals of the ECHL, affiliate of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League and the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League, today announced the forward Dustin Gazley has been loaned from the Bears to the Royals.

Gazley (5/9/179) (25), a third year pro from Novi, Michigan, began the season with Reading and picked up eighteen points (8g-10a) and twenty-two penalty minutes in twenty-five games with the Royals. Gazley was recalled to Hershey on December 30, 2013, and remained with the Bears through the completion of the AHL regular season. While in Hershey, Gazley scored eight goals and assisted on seven other (fifteen points) in forty-two games. Gazley, who led the ECHL in scoring and was named the league’s Rookie of the Year in 2012, is the twenty-third and final player named to the Royals’ Playoff Roster.

The Royals travel to the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Indiana, to face the Fort Wayne Komets in Games Three through Five of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Quarterfinal playoff matchup between the Royals and Komets, which is currently tied at one game apiece. Game Three against the Komets is scheduled for Thursday (April 24 @ 7:30 pm). The game night broadcast on Thursday will kick off with the Pre-Game Warm-Up Show presented by Highmark Blue Shield at 7:00 pm on CBS Sports Radio 1240 am and 98.5 fm in Reading. As with all Royals road games, Thursday’s game will be televised locally in Berks County, Pennsylvania, on BCTV courtesy of Boscov’s Travel and Apple Vacations.
