ESTERO, FL – Florida Everblades President & General Manager Craig Brush along with Head Coach Brad Ralph announced Tuesday that the team has agreed to terms with forward Ralph Cuddemi for the 2016-17 season.
Cuddemi, 23, returns to the Everblades where he posted five points (2g, 3a) in nine appearances last spring. The 6-1, 182-pound forward first joined the Everblades last March after registering 42 points (20g, 22a) in 39 games during his senior campaign at Canisius College.
“We are fortunate to have been able to bring in Ralph Cuddemi late last season,” said Everblades Head Coach Brad Ralph. “He had a strong collegiate career, and brings a tremendous upside. His experience with us late last year will help propel him to becoming a stronger 200-foot player for us in the upcoming season.”
The Concord, Ontario native totaled 123 points during his four-year collegiate career with the Golden Griffins. Cuddemi captained Canisius College last season, and was a college teammate of Everblades defenseman Logan Roe for three seasons.
Cuddemi joins Mike Aviani, Matt Berry, Chase Golightly, Logan Roe, and Alex Kuqali to the list of players who have agreed to terms with the Everblades for the upcoming season. Forward Peter Schneider and defenseman Kevin Clare were also acquired earlier in the summer in a trade with the Indy Fuel. View Current Roster
