Meet The Oilers: Marsh gets a crash course in EHL hockey

NORWALK -- Dejon Marsh could have followed many of his former teammates into the North American Hockey League or he could have traveled north to play in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.

Instead, the Thornton, Colo., native opted to come east and join the Connecticut Oilers' organization, which plays in the Eastern Hockey League.

"I just thought the coaching staff was the best that I could find," said Marsh, 19, who spent the past three seasons with the Colorado-based Rocky Mountain RoughRiders.

"I really like (Oilers' head coach) Eric Lind and what they're doing here with player development. I just felt like I could develop more here and there's more schools out East so I could get better looks (from colleges)."

The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders are an affiliate of the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders, the parent club of the Oilers and a member of the United States Hockey League since 1999.
