Engles Commits to Cleary University

The Florida Eels are excited to announce the college commitment of Premier Defenseman Landen Engles to Cleary University for the fall 2024-2025 season. Engles joined the Eels program in 2020 and remained an essential member of the Eels family for four seasons. Landen started his junior career with the Florida Eels Elite, where he became a grounding force and leader, earning the tile of Captain. It was with his determination, hard work, and skills that he worked his way to a top defensive spot on the Florida Eels Premier team. Although, a foundational member and leader on the Eels Premier, Engles continued to play a mentoring role amongst the Eels Elite, helping guide, motivate and inspire alike. Over the course of his four years with the Florida Eels Engles played in 121 games, scored 32 goals, had 72 assists with a total of 114 points.

Landen Engles states that he fondly remembers the time he spent with his teammates, and the memories he created with the boys. Engles appreciated the family like culture that the Eels cultivated, allowing the players to not only play the sport they love but truly feel like they are part of something bigger. It was that same culture that drew him to Cleary University. Visiting the campus, Landen quickly felt like it was “home”. It was then that he made his decision to join the University to continue his collegiate hockey career and gain an education in Business and finance.

Engles South Dakota original native, migrated to Southwest Florida with his family, where he joined the Eels program. Engles, is thankful for the tremendous support of his family, who continue to support his goals and dreams of playing college hockey. Landen knows that is because of their support that he was able to pursue the training and develop into the player he has become. Landen is excited about joining the Cleary family next season, and knows that his family will continue to support him, from Florida.


The Florida Eels know that Landen will continue to be an exemplary example of commitment, dedication, hard work and leadership amongst his new teammates. We wish him all the best in his colligate hockey experience and look forward to following his journey.
