COLUMBUS, GA - The Columbus River Dragons announced today that Alex Basey has signed a PTO with the team for the 2023-24 season.

Basey, 28, was selected by the River Dragons fourth overall in the Delaware Thunder dispersal draft back in June. He has been a consistent physical presence the last two seasons for the Thunder, amassing 401 minutes in penalties across 62 games in that stretch. He also added three goals and 22 assists for 25 points. The 6-1, 194-pound Oshawa, Ontario native has played pro since the 2017-18 Season and has appeared in a total of 151 FPHL (FHL) games.

“I’m excited to join such a great organization,” said Basey. “I look forward to bringing leadership to the blueline and a championship to Columbus!”

Columbus dealt forward Chuck Costello to the Mississippi Sea Wolves for their selection in the dispersal draft, and used that pick to select Basey. 

Basey will join a stellar roster of talent in training camp when it opens this October, with the River Dragons home opener scheduled for November 17th against the Sea Wolves.
