The Florida Eels are excited to add 6’01” 190 lbs. defensemen Daniel McCarthy to its blueline
The Eels prove time and again how valuable the USPHL Spring Showcase, the Pro Am Pre Draft Showcase and Sr Chowder Cup showcases are to its future. Last year the Eels brought in Daniel McCarthy to the Pro Am Sr, Chowder Cup and were able to get a snap shot view of McCarthy’s skill set. This past May the Eels once again brought McCarthy back to the ProAm Pre Draft showcase games. These were valuable opportunities for our coaches and GM to evaluate first hand not just players skill set but also to access their intangibles in game situations and their attitudes and compete level. Daniel hit high marks all around. He competed in the Pre Draft Jr A Division and helped the Eels team do very well.
The coaches echoed that they loved his grit determination and effort throughout the weekend. He is a tough kid. Played the body very well. Solid in a all 3 zones. Moved the puck very well. Strong transitional game. A strong skater and good nose to lead the line-rush. We see from his past he likes to push the puck up the ice and that is the Eels style of play. We enthusiastically welcome Daniel to our Eels family.
