The San Diego Sabers are excited to announce that Joey Chappelle has re-signed with the Sabers for the upcoming 2022-2023 season in the United States Premier Hockey League. 

The Escondido native and former San Diego Jr Gulls made a large impact on the ice last season for the San Diego Sabers. In his first season competing in the USPHL, the 5'10" forward scored 4 goals and 7 assists in only 33 games played. 

"Thrilled to have Joey join us again this year," said General Manager Domenick DiCicco. "He never stops and is the epitome of a person with a great work ethic. For us this season, I anticipate Joey to be a leader."

The San Diego Sabers have announced their upcoming USPHL Prep Camp on the weekend of August 6-7, 2022 in Carlsbad, California at Icetown Carlsbad. This USPHL Prep Camp will serve as a valuable tool for players interested in pursuing Junior A hockey opportunities. To register, please visit
