Everblades Agree to Terms with Forward Mike Aviani

ESTERO, FL –  Florida Everblades President & General Manager Craig Brush announced Wednesday that forward Mike Aviani has agreed to terms with the Everblades for the 2016-17 season.

Aviani, 23, returns for a third season in Southwest Florida after totaling 16 points (8g, 8a) in 23 games played with the Everblades last season.  In addition, Aviani logged an assist in seven American Hockey League appearances last season split between the San Jose Barracuda and the Iowa Wild.

“We are pleased to have Mike back in the fold for the upcoming season,” said Brush. “He had a great start to last season, but unfortunately he suffered a couple of injuries that limited his playing time. However, we expect him to be a great contributor for us in the coming year.”

The 5-11, 195-pound center totaled 25 points (10g, 15a) in 54 games during his rookie campaign with the ‘Blades in 2014-15.  Aviani opened that season appearing in two games with the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers.

The Surrey, BC native amassed 205 points during his five seasons with the Spokane Chiefs of the Western Hockey League (WHL) from 2009-2014. Aviani recorded a career-best 81-point (38g, 43a) campaign in 2013-14.

Aviani becomes the first player to agree to terms with the Everblades for the 2016-17 season.
