Estero, FL – The Florida Everblades will continue a four-game home stand Saturday when they host the South Division-leading South Carolina Stingrays for a 7:00pm rematch at Germain Arena.
South Carolina claimed the first meeting of the week Friday in a 2-1 thriller.
One night after former NHL’er Brian Rafalski made his Everblades debut, the Blades get more good news on the blue line as fourth-year pro Charles Landry returns to the lineup on ‘D’ after being reassigned to the club from the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL.
Landry’s return will allow Florida to keep six defensemen in the lineup, as Rafalski is unavailable for Saturday’s tilt.
On the other side, South Carolina’s lineup saw another exit as defenseman Ryan Grimshaw was loaned to the Rochester Americans of the AHL.
Tickets are on sale right now for Friday’s home contest at the Capital Bank Box Office, open Monday-Friday, 10:00am until 6:00pm.
