GREENVILLE, S.C. - Florida finishes up their road trip to Greenville on Saturday against the Swamp Rabbits. The Blades are currently one of only two teams (Indy, 3-0-0-0) in the ECHL to remain unbeaten through multiple games this season.
The Everblades lead the league in goals with 16 through three games, and also sit atop the power play rankings (29.4%). Florida is still perfect on the penalty kill, stopping all 17 chances that opponents have had on the man-advantage so far.
Rookie on Top: First-year forward Patrick Harper leads the entire ECHL with four goals so far this season. The rookie recorded a goal in each of the games during the season’s opening weekend, and scored a pair of goals on Friday at Greenville. Harper has produced his four tallies on only five shots. The Boston University product had 14 goals last season with the Terriers.
Blades Add to Blue Line: Florida announced on Tuesday that the team signed defenseman Matt Petgrave. Petgrave has split time with Brampton (ECHL) and Utica (AHL) for the last two seasons. In 41 games with Brampton in 2019-20, Petgrave put up 33 points (7g-26a). Lauded for his skating ability, the 6-foot-1, 201-pound Toronto native was named an All-ECHL First Team selection on defense with Brampton in 2018-19. In 140 career ECHL games, Petgrave has produced 98 points (24g-74a).
Killers: The Everblades are the only team in the ECHL to have not allowed a power-play goal through two games in the 2020-21 season. The Florida penalty-kill unit has silenced all 17 opportunities that opponents have had, including holding Greenville scoreless on four power play attempts last night.
