The Florida Everblades announced their Playoff Roster on Tuesday. Each playoff team can have a maximum of 24 players, 20 active players, and four on reserve. Each team, however, must have at least 17 active players and at least two eligible goaltenders. Players on loan to the NHL or AHL can be placed on a Playoff Eligible List, and injured players must be listed on the team’s initial Playoff Roster to be eligible to play in the playoffs. Players can be added to the team’s playoff roster from the Playoff Eligible List if they’ve been reassigned, released from PTO, or the AHL team’s season has ended. The playoff team, however, can only have 24 players on its Playoff Roster. 

The Everblades active players (19) for the playoffs are:

· Goaltenders (2) Cam Johnson and David Tendeck.

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

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

The reserve list (3) is forwards Logan Lambdin, Reed Lebster, and Joe Pendenza.

The Playoff Eligible List (7) is:

· Goaltender (1) Evan Cormier.

· Defensemen (2) Dennis Cesana and Evan Nause.

· Forwards (4) Cam Morrison, Kai Schwindt, Wilmer Skoog, and Matthew Wedman.

The Everblades have ten players on their active and reserve playoff list who were on last year’s Kelly Cup-winning team from last season:

· Goaltender Cam Johnson.

· Defensemen Cole Moberg and Zach Uens.

· Forwards Bobo Carpenter, Oliver Chau, Cam Darcy, Sean Josling, Logan Lambdin, Kyle Neuber, and Joe Pendenza.

Coach Brad Ralph has gone with an unusual active roster with ten forwards and seven defensemen. A team typically uses four lines of three forwards for 12 skaters and three lines of two defensemen for six skaters. Coach Ralph has elected to start with three full lines of forwards with an extra forward and three full lines of defenseman with an extra defenseman. His configuration, however, allows him to activate Logan Lambdin and Joe Pendenza if needed.

The Everblades travel to Jacksonville to play the Icemen in game one on Wednesday.
