On the Elite Side of things, Who Are those Mask Men?

Evan Spinella out of Farmingville, NY, comes as a 4 year veteran of the USPHL. Wow. Where do you find a kid with such depth and experience? Moreover, a top netminder for the Tampa Juniors for 3 seasons. The Eels knew him quite well. Many of battles with the two preeminent teams in the Florida Division Eels vs Tampa and Spinella was largely responsible for the wins Tampa scored. Evan brings not only experience and veteran status he also brings outstanding skill set. He sees the puck well, excellent vision, quick feet and a strong glove. He controls rebounds. Evan already notched 2 wins No losses. Flawless play. This kid is college bound. The Eels know this and we are quite verse in college placement.

As a young man we are so thrilled he joined our Eels program. He is personable, determined and dedicated to his position and team. Indeed, a true team player. Strong character and all about being part of the team. Has bought into the Eels work ethic and culture.

Nate Haas. Another 3rd year veteran of the USPHL joining the Eels in net. He is from Virginia Beach VA. He comes with a wealth of experience and has proven to the task with 2 straight wins and no losses. He is a solid student of the game. Very confident. Determined and quite dedicated. He has excellent rebound control. Quick glove. Controlled rebounds and great butterfly pro like saves.

The Haas family is no foreign to the Eels, Nate’s brother also migrated from the Hampton Road Whalers and became an key component of his team’s winning season. Nate played quite well against the Eels last season in brick house efforts. He joined us two seasons in the post season at the Chowder Cups and Pre Drafts and we were impressed and no what he can deliver. He is a great character individual who comes from a great family.
