'Blades Announce Roster for 2015 Kelly Cup Playoffs

ESTERO, FL – The Florida Everblades announced Tuesday the team’s roster for the 2015 Kelly Cup Playoffs. The roster is comprised of 11 forwards, seven defensemen, two goaltenders, and six players listed on the playoff eligible list.

The Everblades 2015 Kelly Cup playoff roster is as follows:

Forwards (11)Mike AvianiEvan BloodoffAdam BraceNicholas DeschampsGabriel DesjardinsRay KaunistoAlex LavoieMatt MarquardtCasey Pierro-ZabotelMitch WahlSteven Whitney

Defensemen (7)Mike CornellKevin CzuczmanRob FlorentinoGleason Fournier (on playoff reserve)Jesse GrahamJordan HenryMike Little

Goaltenders (2) Daniel AltshullerAllen York

The Everblades may add up to three more players off the following “Playoff Eligible List” to reach the 23-player maximum:

Alex Aleardi (F)Brant Harris (F)Kevin Lynch (F)Matt Mangene (D/F)Anthony Peters (G)Corey Trivino (F)

Playoff Rosters consist of a maximum of 23 Players – a 20-man active roster and a three-man reserve list. Upon submission of its Playoff Roster, each Member is required to include:

1. a minimum of 19 active, available (i.e. not injured or on recall) Players; and

2. a list of all other Players who meet the Playoff Roster Eligibility requirements, but who are unavailable at the time that Playoff Rosters are due to the League Office due to recall to the AHL or NHL. The Playoff Eligible List may only list Players who are unavailable due to recall. All other players (i.e. injured Players) must be listed on a Member’s initial Playoff Roster (active roster or reserve list) in order to participate in the Playoffs.

Throughout the Playoffs, but prior to the start of the Conference Finals, as the recalled Players listed on a Member’s Playoff Eligible List become available (due to assignment, release from PTO or their respective AHL teams’ seasons having ended), Members shall be permitted to supplement their initial Playoff Rosters with Players listed on their Playoff Eligible Lists, up to a maximum of 23 Players total. Once a Member has named a total of 23 Players to its Playoff Roster, or the Conference Finals have begun (whichever comes first), the Member’s Playoff Roster shall be fixed for the duration of the Playoffs (barring emergency conditions).

A Player who has finished the Regular Season on Injured Reserve may still be named to a Member’s 23-man Playoff Roster and will be eligible to participate in the Playoffs once his full IR time has been completed (provided all other playoff eligibility requirements have been satisfied). Once a Player has fully completed his remaining IR time, he may be activated and placed on the Member’s Active Roster.

Emergency conditions shall be established when the playing strength of the Member, by reason of injury, illness, recall or suspension by the League, is reduced below two (2) goalkeepers and sixteen (16) skaters. However, should a Member release a Player(s) from its Playoff Roster, its emergency conditions will drop by the same number as the Players they release. Only amateur Players may be signed and added to the Active Roster under emergency conditions.
