Everblades Announce 2024 Playoff Roster

ESTERO, Fla. – The Florida Everblades have announced their roster for the 2024 Kelly Cup Playoffs presented by the Lexus Dealers of Southwest Florida. 

Florida’s playoff roster comprises 13 forwards, seven defensemen, and two goaltenders, with two additional spots open for eligible players currently in the American Hockey League.

Forwards (10): Cam Darcy, Ben Brar, Mark Senden, Bobo Carpenter, Oliver Chau, Todd Skirving, Kyle Neuber, Sean Josling, Jesse Lansdell, Josh Ho-Sang

Defensemen (7): Cole Moberg, Zach Berzolla, Will Reilly, Zach Uens, Adrien Bisson, Riese Zmolek, Jordan Sambrook

Goalies (2): David Tendeck, Cam Johnson

Reserve List (3): Logan Lambdin, Reed Lebster, Joe Pendenza

Playoff Eligible List (7): Dennis Cesana (D), Kai Schwindt (F), Wilmer Skoog (F), Cam Morrison (F), Matthew Wedman (F), Evan Nause (D), Evan Cormier (G)

Playoff rosters consist of a maximum of 24 players – a 20-man active roster and a four-man reserve list. Upon submission of its Playoff Roster, each member is required to include:

  1. A minimum of 17 active skaters and two active netminders, with none of them being on injured reserve or on recall.
  2. A list of all players who meet the Playoff Roster Eligibility requirements, but who are currently on recall in either the NHL or AHL and, as such, cannot be placed on the playoff roster in time for the due date.

All other players who are not eligible to play at the beginning of the playoffs, but are also not on recall (ex. injury or bereavement leave), must be listed on the initial playoff roster in order to participate in the postseason. These players do not count towards the 18 active skater count.

Throughout the playoffs, but prior to the start of the 2024 Kelly Cup Finals, as recalled players listed on a club’s playoff eligible list become available (due to assignment, release from PTO, or their respective AHL teams’ seasons having ended), teams can supplement their initial rosters with players listed on their playoff eligible lists. Once a team lists a total of 24 on its playoff roster, or the Kelly Cup Finals have begun (whichever comes first), the member’s playoff roster shall be fixed for the duration of the postseason (barring emergency conditions).

A Player who has finished the regular season on injured reserve may still be named to a team’s 24-man Playoff Roster and will be eligible to participate in the Playoffs once his full IR time has been completed (provided all other playoff eligibility requirements have been satisfied). Once a Player has fully completed his remaining IR time, he may be activated and placed on the active roster.

Emergency conditions may come into effect if the playing strength of a team, by reason of injury, illness, recall or suspension, drops below two goalkeepers or sixteen skaters. However, should a club release a player from its playoff roster, its emergency conditions will drop by the same number as the Players they release. Only amateur players may be signed and added to the active roster under emergency conditions.

Florida’s hunt for the 2024 Kelly Cup begins Thursday, April 18 with Game One against the Jacksonville Icemen. For a second straight season, the Everblades begin the playoffs on the road, with puck drop for Game One at 7:00 p.m. Thursday and Game Two on Sunday, April 21 at 3:00 p.m. before the series shifts back to southwest Florida.
