ECHL: Florida Everblades Transactions | 03/08/2024

The Florida Everblades had six player transactions late yesterday and today with a trade, recalls from the AHL, movement on and off the injured reserve list, and personal leave.

Forward Evan Boucher was traded to the Iowa Heartlanders for future considerations. On January 22, after finishing his season with the University of Ottawa, Boucher signed a contract. He played in eight games for the Everblades, scoring one goal and one assist.

The Everblades blueline got significantly crowded today, with Cole Moberg and Zach Uens returning from their stints in the AHL. Moberg was loaned to the Syracuse Crunch on February 26, where he played in two games. Zach Uens was reassigned back to the Everblades from the Charlotte Checkers. He was assigned to the Checkers on March 4 but didn’t play during his four-day assignment. The departures of Moberg and Uens created a shortage on defense for Coach Ralph. He signed defensemen Adrien Bisson and Justin MacPherson out of college on Wednesday and had both in the lineup for the Everblades’ game against the Jacksonville Icemen on Wednesday night. The return of Moberg and Uens gives Coach Ralph nine defensemen, a luxury for the playoffs.

The Everblades’ offense got a jolt Friday when forward Bobo Carpenter was activated from injured reserve. Carpenter has been on injured reserve since February 14. He has 21 goals and ten assists for the team this season, his best in his six-year career.

Forward Cam Hausinger was placed on bereavement/family leave Friday. He’s played in 45 games for the Everblades, scoring five goals and six assists. He has had injury issues this season and has not hit his offensive stride.
