EVERBLADES AGREE TO TERMS WITH ZACHARY TSEKOS

ESTERO, Fla. – Florida Everblades General Manager and Head Coach Brad Ralph announced the team has agreed to terms with forward Zachary Tsekos to a standard player contract for the 2023-24 season.

Tsekos, 26, joins the Everblades for his third professional season. In his first two pro years, Tsekos played in 33 regular season games with the Utah Grizzlies, tallying 26 points behind 13 goals and 13 assists. In 17 postseason clashes, Tsekos added 13 more points with four goals and nine assists. Last season with Utah, Tsekos played in 30 games, netting 13 goals, and adding 12 assists for a 25-point campaign.

Tsekos made his AHL debut at the start of the 2022-23 season with the Colorado Eagles, playing in six games without recording a point.

Before turning pro, the Montreal, Quebec native played his college hockey at Sacred Heart and Clarkson University. At SHU for his freshman and sophomore campaigns, Tsekos skated in 62 contests, lit the lamp 12 times, and dealt 30 assists. He then used the 2018-19 season as a transfer year to attend Clarkson. In three seasons with the Golden Knights Tsekos played 91 games, burying 27 goals and 48 assists along the way. Tsekos saved his best for last, going on a 15 goal, 16 assist, 31-point tear to cap off his collegiate career. In his final two seasons in Potsdam, N.Y., Tsekos donned the captain’s “C” for Clarkson.

The Everblades will begin the defense of the organization’s back-to-back Kelly Cup Championships on Thursday, October 19 with a road matchup against the Orlando Solar Bears. The 2023-24 home opener is slated for Saturday, October 28 with a 7:00 p.m. against the Jacksonville Icemen at Hertz Arena.
