Everblades, AHL's Admirals swap Smith, Magwood

ESTERO, Fla. — The American Hockey League’s Milwaukee Admirals recalled on Sunday forward Zach Magwood from his loan to the Florida Everblades, while the Admirals have reassigned defenseman Adam Smith to Florida. 

Magwood, 21, is in his second professional season and is tied for the Everblades lead with 32 points (13g-19a) in 34 games. This marks Magwood's first recall to the Admirals this season. 

A native of Cambridge, Ontario, Magwood spent most of the 2018-19 campaign with Milwaukee, seeing action in 44 games and posting 12 points (4g-8a) in his rookie season. He also suited up in 11 games for the ECHL's Atlanta Gladiators and recorded five points (1g-4a). Prior to turning pro, Magwood played three seasons in the Ontario Hockey League with the Barrie Colts. He had 106 points (52g-54a) in 173 career games with Barrie, including a career-best 59-point season in his final year with the club in 2017-18. 

A rookie from Sharon, Ontario, Smith has played in 22 games for the Everblades this season and has tabbed a goal, two assists and a plus-minus rating of +8. Smith, who was drafted in the seventh round, 198th overall, by the Nashville Predators in the 2016 NHL Draft, saw ice time in two games with the Admirals in his second call-up of the season. 

Prior to turning pro at the end of last season, Smith saw action in 118 career games at Bowling Green State University from 2015-19. He registered six goals and 12 assists in his four-year career and finished with an even plus-minus rating and 104 career penalty minutes.

Florida continues a season-high five-game road trip with a Wednesday night matchup against the Kalamazoo Wings. Faceoff is slated for 7 p.m. ET in the first of the Everblades' three games next week.
