Winger Matt Marquardt Returns to Everblades

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 Matt Marquardt.

Marquardt, 27, returns to the Everblades after posting 20 points (8g, 12a) in 37 games played with Kaufbeuren ESV (DEL-2) this season.   Last season, the 6-3, 229-pound winger logged 13 points in 61 appearances with the Charlotte Checkers (AHL).

Marquardt played with the Everblades from 2011-2013 totaling 59 points (24g, 35a) in 82 games during that stretch. He played a key role in the Everblades' 2012 Kelly Cup Championship run,  registering 18 points (6g, 12a) in 18 playoff appearances. In addition, he scored the game-winning goal in overtime to lead Florida to a 4-3 victory in Game 3 of the Kelly Cup Finals.

The North Bay, Ontario, native accumulated 44 points (15g, 29a) in 180 games played in the American Hockey League in stints with Providence (2008-2010), Springfield (2010), and Oklahoma City (2010-2011). He amassed 164 points during his junior career with the Moncton Wildcats (2005-08) and the Baie-Comeau Drakkar (2008) of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Marquardt was selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the seventh-round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. He was originally acquired by the Everblades in a trade with Bakersfield on January 6, 2012.
