2015 Des Moines Buccaneers' Hall of Fame Class

Member Role Years with the Bucs
Matt Dalton Goaltender Matt is a fine example of perseverance in hockey and has carved himself an excellent professional career. Dalton played heavy minutes in the pipes for Des Moines in the 06’-07’ season, posting a 2.83 GAA and a .909 SV% facing many shots a night. Dalton ended his Bucs career with all-time records in appearances (53), minutes played (3,029), saves (1,423), and shutouts (5). He is also second all-time in wins with 27. He went on to backstop the Bemidji State Beavers in the Western Collegiate Hockey Conference for two seasons before signing a professional contract with the Boston Bruins. After bouncing around between the AHL and ECHL Bruin affiliates for two seasons, Dalton took his talents to the KHL in Russia for the 11’-12’ season. Dalton has now spent four seasons with Anyang Halla of the Asia Professional Hockey League and represented South Korea in Pyeongchang at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Marty Mjelleli Forward, Coach, Scout Marty has become entrenched in Buccaneer history serving many roles for the organization. Mjelleli served as captain for the Buccaneers in his second season in Des Moines. During that 03’-04’season Mjelleli was outstanding, tallying 21 goals and 36 assists over 60 games. Marty’s junior prowess brought him to St. Cloud State University for four seasons. After a three-year pro career spanning the ECHL to Netherlands, Marty served as Head Coach of the Bucs for part of the 2011-12 season and was assistant in Des Moines for two seasons after that. He still serves as a scout in the Midwest for the Buccaneers.
Mike Nooyen Forward There was a lot of greatness in the 90’s at Buccaneer Arena, but few could forget the greatness of Mike Nooyen during his Buccaneer days from 94’-96’. In two seasons with the Bucs Nooyen had 101 points, including a very special night in 1995 against the Wisconsin Capitals. Mike netted a hat-trick and five-assists for a massive eight-point night. Nooyen’s name still sits in the record categories for most assists in one game (5) and most points in one game (8).
Bob Revermann Goaltender Revermann’s Buccaneers numbers have stood the test of time… and for good reason. His one season in Des Moines it was impossible to put pucks by the staunch netminder. During the Buccaneers third Clark Cup championship run in 97’-98’, Revermann had a staggering 1.63 GAA and a .938 SV%. Both of those marks still hold up as the best stats in Buccaneer goaltending history.
