ESTERO, Fla. — Florida Everblades defenseman Logan Roe has been named to the roster for the 2020 Warrior/ECHL All-Star Classic presented by Toyota, the league announced on Monday.
A fifth-year professional and native of Fort Myers, Florida, Roe is enjoying a career year and leads ECHL defensemen in a host of categories, including goals (10), points (29) and plus-minus rating (+27). This marks Roe's first career ECHL All-Star Game selection.
Roe is one of three players to suit up in all 34 of Florida’s games this season, and he is on pace to shatter nearly every offensive career-high that he has established through his first four seasons with the Everblades. The blueliner’s goal total is already three more than his previous career-high of seven goals from the 2017-18 season, while he has a career-high with three power-play tallies this year. Roe is just four points and 10 assists shy of career-highs in both categories, as well.
Should he continue at his current clip, Roe could also set a single-season career-high for plus-minus rating. He posted a career-best plus-minus rating of +43 in the 2017-18 campaign, a rating that landed him the ECHL’s Plus Performer of the Year honor, which is given annually to the ECHL player with the highest plus-minus clip. Roe is currently just +5 away from sharing the overall league lead in that category.
Roe is fifth all-time in games played for the Everblades and has totaled 118 points (26g-92a) in 281 career contests. He moved into sole possession of fifth place for career games by suiting up in Sunday’s 5-4 overtime win over the Greenville Swamp Rabbits.
Prior to turning pro, Roe saw action in 146 career games at Canisius College. He posted a goal and 24 assists in a four-year Division I career that spanned from 2011-15.
