'Blades Add Geary & Stejskal for 2013-14

ESTERO, FL – Florida Everblades President and General Manager Craig Brush along with Head Coach Greg Poss announced Thursday that the team has agreed to terms with forward Josh Geary and defenseman Joe Stejskal for the 2013-14 season.

Geary, 23, returns after posting three points (1g, 2a) in four appearances with the Everblades last spring.  Prior to Florida, the 6-0, 185-pound forward concluded his collegiate career at St. Michael’s College with a career best 24 points and 16 goals.

"Josh is a strong skating forward, who fits well in our system,” said Poss.  “We are excited to be able to bring him back this season.”

The Wellesley, Massachusetts native totaled 67 points (36g, 31a) during his four seasons with St. Michael’s.

Stejskal, 25, joins the Everblades after splitting time with the Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL) and the Wheeling Nailers (ECHL) last season. The 6-3, 206-pound blue liner registered six points (1g, 5a) in 31 games played with Hamilton, while logging four assists in 26 appearances with Wheeling.

“Joe is a good sized, two-way defenseman who can skate very well,” said Poss. “He has over two years experience in the American Hockey League, and we expect him to contribute on our power play.”

Stejskal posted three assists in 62 games for the Bulldogs from 2010-12.   In addition, he amassed 32 points (14g, 18a) during his four-year collegiate career at Dartmouth College.

The Grand Rapids, Minnesota native was selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the 5th round (133rd overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
