Gwinnett, GA – The Florida Everblades announced Friday that defenseman Mike Cornell has signed a professional tryout offer with the American Hockey League’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the AHL affiliate of the New York Islanders.
Cornell, who hails from Franklin, Mass., leads all ECHL defensemen in plus/minus with a +10 mark through 12 games. When he suits up for the Sound Tigers, it will be his first career AHL game.
The 25-year-old blueliner joined the Everblades in the spring of 2013 after completing a four-year career at the University of Maine. He played six regular season games in 2012-13 before appearing in all 13 Kelly Cup Playoff contests for the Blades.
On the ice, the Blades continue a three-game South Division road trip Friday at The Arena at Gwinnett Center for a 7:05pm rematch with the Gwinnett Gladiators as Florida looks to try and snap a three-game skid.
Friday’s contest will be broadcast locally on FOX Sports Radio 1350 AM and worldwide online on America ONE, the official broadband and mobile broadcaster of the ECHL, at www.americaonesports.com. Pregame coverage will get under way at 6:50pm.
