ESTERO, Fla. — The Florida Everblades, the ECHL affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced on Monday morning the roster and schedule for its training camp, which is slated to begin with an 11 a.m. Monday practice at Hertz Arena, formerly named Germain Arena.
The Everblades have 19 players on their initial roster to start training camp, including 10 forwards, seven defensemen, and two goaltenders. Additional training camp roster moves will be made throughout the week, and the initial regular season roster will include 21 players.
Five players from last season’s Brabham Cup-winning squad are on the preliminary training camp roster, including leading goal scorer John McCarron, who had 29 goals in the 2017-18 regular season, and Southwest Florida native Logan Roe, who enters his fourth season with the team.
