I'm really loving the regular signing announcements from the Everblades. Today they announced the signing of rookie forward Kevin Deeth. He's spent the last four years playing for Notre Dame, and before that spent some time in the USHL and Shattuck-Saint Mary's. A quick look at his stats:
He's definitely not the biggest guy, the team lists him as 5'7'' and 170. Actually, he's the shortest (Nikiforov has an inch on him) and tied for the lightest. I did find some of the quotes I found on him pretty interesting, especially this post from Hockey's Future. In it, he was named as one of the 2007 top 20 NCAA prospects (scroll down to # 14). It looks like he's got the feisty intelligent playing style that's great to see in s smallish forward.
I'm not sure if it's worth mentioning, but his brother, Brian Deeth, may be familiar to some of the Everblades fans. He spent three seasons bouncing around the ECHL, playing with the Chiefs, Roadrunners, Grizzlies, and Checkers before finally spending the majority of last season in the SPHL.
For those of you who are interested it looks like he did make a Twitter account. He made a grand total of 1 tweet, but I'm hoping some interest might bring him back.
