News and Notes

Why don't we just jump into it, eh?

-  The team announced their protected list. As usual, it takes four or five reads through to figure out the rules behind these things.

- The Lee County Board of Commissioners recognized the Everblades at a recent meeting.

- The Everblades renewed their affiliation with the Tampa Bay Lightning. We will have a new AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch, due to the Bolts choosing not to continue their affiliation with the Norfolk Admirals.

- We had our first player sign overseas. Mike Ratchuck is off to play in the Austrian hockey league with the Slovenian team Olimpija Ljubljana.

- The ECHL gave the Blades an award for ticket department of the year. Yay!

- On top of the Bolt's vs. Canes preseason game in Orlando, the Panthers and Bolts will be playing a preseason game... at Germain! I'm ridiculously excited about this.

Hopefully, the team starts announcing signing soon. Things are going to get a little boring around here if they don't.
