Thank You, Ryan Marker
The Watertown Wolves would like to announce that we have agreed to trade Ryan Marker to the Delaware Thunder, in exchange for financial considerations, as well as the Thunder’s first pick (second overall) in the Danville Dasher’s disbursal draft. “Ryan has been a great player for Watertown and I wish we could have kept him, but he is at the point of his career where he wants to be closer to “home”, and being in Delaware allows him to keep playing professional hockey.
We wish Marker nothing but the best as he returns to play for the Thunder for a second spell”, said Andreas Johansson. Being a native of Philadelphia, Ryan has most of his family still in the area, as well as the opportunity to explore full-time work away from the rink. After dressing up for Watertown in 12 games during the 2019-20 season, Marker most recently played for the Elmira Enforcers at the end of the 20/21 season, amassing 7 points over 3 games and helping put the team into the championship round. “Marker showed that he is a quality player and can win games with his exceptional scoring ability.
I am sure the fans in Delaware will appreciate his style of play, and I want to see him being successful there”, said Brent Clarke.
“I have enjoyed every minute of playing in a Wolves jersey and will have nothing but great memories from my time in Watertown. Ultimately I am at the point where I want to be closer to home, I recently got married and have most of my family in the Philadelphia area, and ultimately playing in Delaware offers me the opportunity to do the best of both worlds. I feel I still have a lot of great hockey in me, and I look forward to returning to Delaware again”, said Ryan Marker.
In addition to financial considerations, the Wolves will now have both the 2nd and 3rd pick in the first round of the Danville Dashers disbursal draft, set to likely take place later this week.
