Maine senior defenseman Mike Cornell has signed an amateur tryout agreement (ATO) with the Florida Everblades of the East Coast Hockey League. Cornell was a tri-captain for the Black Bears this season. The Franklin, Massachusetts native was a steady defenseman who played with a physical edge for Tim Whitehead's program. He was one of just two Maine defensemen to finish this season in the plus side (+2).
The Everblades are an affiliate of the Charlotte Checkers and Syracuse Crunch (AHL) and the Tampa Bay Lightning (NHL).
