Florentino Returns to 'Blades for 2015-16

ESTERO, FL – Florida Everblades President & General Manager Craig Brush along with Head Coach Greg Poss announced today that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman Rob Florentino for the 2015-16 season.

Florentino, 26, returns to Florida after recording eight points (4g, 4a) with the Everblades last season. In addition, the 6-1,190-pound blueliner scored two goals in 18 contests with the Elmira Jackals prior to being acquired by the Everblades in January of 2015.

“Rob became a leader in our lockeroom after we acquired him from Elmira last season,” said Everblades Head Coach Greg Poss. “He was a great addition to our team who can play both forward and defense.  We look for him to continue to progress as a player this season.”

Florentino totaled 64 points (21g, 43a) in three seasons at the University of Massachusetts-Boston (ECAC) from 2010-2013.

The West Roxbury, Massachusetts native registered 15 points (5g,10a) in 15 games played with the Huntsville Havoc (SPHL) during the 2013-14 season.  Florentino has also made appearances with the ECHL’s Reading Royals (2013-14) and Las Vegas Wranglers (2012-13).
