Brace, a native of the Ottawa valley, a former professional hockey player. The former player started with Mississauga St.Michaels Majors in the OHL where he became the franchise leader in games played and points.

After the OHL he turned pro and played with the Worcester Sharks, Iowa Wild, Chicago Wolves and the Wheeling Nailers. He then decided to head over to Europe to play the next 6 years in some breathtaking countries such as Cortina Italy, Bolzano Italy, Winterthur Switzerland, and finally spending his last season in Stjernen Norway.

It was during his last season in Norway when Riley decided to apply for the 2022 NHL exposure combine, which looks to develop officials and promote the transition of former players into officials.

His performance at the combine earned him an invite to work the traverse city prospects tournament and to spend the 2022-23 season working the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) and the American Hockey League (AHL).

In the summer of 2023 he was invited to attend the Exposure Combine for a 2nd year in a row where he was signed to a NHL minor league contract.
