Beaverson, Sweetland Assigned to Everblades
(Rochester, NY)... Rochester Americans General Manager Jody Gage announced today that the Florida Panthers (NHL) have reassigned forward Andrew Sweetland and defenseman Luke Beaverson to the Florida Everblades of the ECHL.
Sweetland, 22, heads for the Sunshine State for the second time this season where he has nine points (4+5) and four penalty minutes (PIM) in 12 games with the Everblades. In 40 American Hockey League appearances this season with the Amerks, the 6-foot-2, 204-pound native of Bonavista, Newfoundland has registered two assists to go along with 10 PIM.
Beaverson also makes his second return of the season to Florida where he has recorded three points (0+3) in 18 appearances with the Everblades. A native of Vadnais Heights, Minnesota, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound blueliner has one assist and 21 PIM in 14 contests with Rochester this season. Beaverson was the Florida Panthers' ninth-round selection (283rd overall) in the 2004 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
Rochester's three-game weekend kicks off on Friday, February 27th as it travels north of the border to take on the Hamilton Bulldogs in a North Division showdown at Copps Coliseum. The 7:30 p.m. contest will be the seventh of eight meetings between the two teams this season and will be broadcast live on SportsRadio 1280 WHTK, whtk.com and AHL Live.
The Amerks earned a 6-5 victory over the 'Dogs in the teams' last meeting back on January 11th at The Blue Cross Arena. Despite being outscored 24-19 and trailing with a 2-3-0-1 record in the season series, the Amerks still own a 62-49-9 all-time record against the Montreal Canadiens' affiliate.
