'Blades Add Goaltender Barone; Sandlak Recalled to AHL Charlotte

ESTERO, FL – Florida Everblades President & General Manager Craig Brush along with Head Coach Greg Poss announced Wednesday that the team has agreed to terms with goaltender Brad Barone (pictured above). In addition, forward Carter Sandlak was reassigned to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League.

Barone, 25, returns to the Everblades after posting a 7-6-1 record, a 2.18 goals-against-average and a .936 save percentage in 14 appearances with the Louisiana IceGators of the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) this season.  The 5-10, 177-pound netminder made his professional debut with the Everblades in Game One of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against South Carolina on May 1, 2015.  Barone stopped all five shots faced in 17 minutes of play in a relief effort.  The Medfield, Massachusetts native played eight games for Boston College over three seasons recording a 2-1-0 record, a 2.44 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage.  He earned both of his career wins in back-to-back games during the 2014-15 season.

Sandlak, 22, heads back to Charlotte where he has logged an assist in ten appearances with the Checkers this season. Sandlak has totaled six points (2g, 4a) in ten appearances with the Everblades.  Last season, he registered four points (2g, 2a) with 69 penalty minutes in 44 appearances with the Checkers. In addition, the 6-2, 205-pound winger logged three assists in three appearances with the Everblades last spring as well. The Vancouver, BC native posted 48 points (24g, 24a) in 61 games played with the Plymouth Whalers (OHL) in 2013-14. Sandlak totaled 122 points during his five seasons played in the Ontario Hockey League (2010-2014) in stints with Guelph, Belleville, and Plymouth.
