ESTERO, FL – Florida Everblades President & General Manager Craig Brush along with Head Coach Greg Poss announced today that the team has acquired defenseman Corey Syvret from the Alaska Aces in exchange for defenseman Gleason Fournier.

Syvret, 26, joins the Everblades after closing out his three-year stint with the Aces last season registering 19 points (6g, 13a) with a plus-12 rating in 45 games played.  The 6-2, 200-pound blueliner totaled 52 points (9g, 43a) and a plus-38 rating in 105 appearances during his three seasons in Alaska (2012-2015).

“Corey has been a solid defenseman the past few years with Alaska,” said Everblades Head Coach Greg Poss. “With his experience, we expect him to be a real leader for us both on and off the ice.”

Syvret (pronounced SIV-rhett) has logged an assist in 18 American Hockey League games in his career split between the Rochester Americans, Portland Pirates, and Toronto Marlies.  In addition, he has appeared in a total of 192 ECHL contests with Alaska, the Trenton Titans and Kalamazoo Wings
