Everblades Sign NHL Veteran Trevor Daley


ESTERO, Fla. - Florida Everblades General Manager Craig Brush along with Director of Hockey Operations and Head Coach Brad Ralph announced Thursday that they have signed defenseman Trevor Daley. Daley will be seeing his first games of the 2021-22 season and will be entering his 18th season of professional hockey.

A second round (#43 overall) pick by the Dallas Stars in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, Daley has spent most of his professional seasons in the National Hockey League with the Dallas Stars, Chicago Blackhawks, Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings. The Toronto, ON native has appeared in 1,058 regular season games at the highest level of the sport. Daley also appeared in 118 games in the American Hockey League (AHL) between the Utah Grizzlies and Hamilton Bulldogs. He is a two-time Stanley Cup champion in 2016 and 2017 under Pittsburgh after their back-to-back Cup wins. 

Before joining the professional ranks, Daley spent three seasons with the Ontario Hockey League’s Soo Greyhounds from 2000-2003. There, he combined 45 goals and 101 assists across 170 games. Trevor and his wife Lee-Anne became franchise owners of the Soo Thunderbirds in April 2021.
