MACON, GA – The Southern Professional Hockey League’s Macon Mayhem have announced that they have mutually parted ways with goaltender Greg Hussey.
Since joining the Mayhem in early January, Hussey has gone 3-3-2 with a 3.97 goals against average and a save percentage of 88%. One of the many highlights of his time with the Mayhem is when Greg Hussey recorded his first shutout in over seven years against the Vermillion County Bobcats on March 25, 2022. Besides his contributions on the ice, Greg loved to do work within the community and almost immediately became a fan favorite.
“Speaking with Greg over the past few days, he had indicated that this was something he was interested in doing,” said Mayhem Head Coach Zac Desjardins. “We appreciate all Greg has done for our organization the past few months and the presence he has been within the community. Like I’ve been saying, we really do appreciate all he’s done, and the door is open for a possible return next season should he still want to play. He [Greg] wanted to be clear that this was not requested out of disappointment, but rather opportunity.”
That opportunity you may ask? A chance to chase a championship. Greg Hussey will be returning to the Federal Prospects Hockey League’s Watertown Wolves, where he went 7-2-0 with a 3.53 goals against average on a 90.6% save percentage earlier this season. Watertown has clinched the regular season championship with a 40-11-3 record and will be turning their eyes toward the FPHL’s Commissioner’s Cup. Greg reunites with his brother Brendan Hussey, who also played for Macon earlier this season.
“This was the best move for me, even though it weighs heavy on my heart,” said Greg Hussey. “This was my decision, and I thank Coach Zac for his understanding. You [ the fans] have made lifelong memories for myself and my family, and I am forever grateful. I want to let the fans know I love you and thank you. I hope to be back next year wearing one of those red jerseys between the pipes.”
The Macon Mayhem wish Greg the best moving forward for the rest of the season as we have a new rooting interest in the FPHL playoffs.
The Macon Mayhem wrap up their season with a three game home stand against the Pensacola Ice Flyers. Tickets are still available at ticketmaster.com or in person at the Macon Coliseum box office.
