Marksmen sign Dalton Hunter for the 2023-24 season

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – The Fayetteville Marksmen, proud members of the SPHL, have re-signed forward Dalton Hunter for the 2023-24 season. 

Hunter, 25, finished the 2022-23 season with the Marksmen following his graduation from Mercyhurst University. The Greensburg, Pennsylvania, native scored three goals in seven regular season games wearing the black and orange and played in all three playoff games for Fayetteville. 

“Dalton brings over 100 games of NCAA D-I experience to the team,” said Head Coach Ryan Cruthers. “He has the ability to produce while being a big two-way forward that can play anywhere in the lineup.” 

In college, the 6’3”, 209-pound winger was named an alternate captain for the 2020-21 season and recorded 54 (18G+36A) points and 81 PIM in 108 total games for Mercyhurst. 

The Marksmen will take to the ice on Saturday, Oct. 21 vs. Roanoke in the season’s home opener.
