The Florida Eels are Extremely Excited about the Return of Veteran Forward Maverick Crupi to the Eels Line-Up.
Crupi joined the Eels midseason last year and was an immediate team favorite upon his arrival. He fit right in. Great personality. Outstanding team guy on and off the ice. Hungry to learn. Extremely coachable. Brought enormous passion and enthusiasm on and off the ice. He bought right into the Eels goals and mission. He has very strong skill set. A very good skater with quick acceleration often leaving opposing defenders standing still. He has the insatiable appetite to drive to the net and score. He has so much upside. Can play power play kills penalties and a relentless fore-checker that suffocates opposing forwards. He equally is a work horse on the back check knowing to smother opponents entering our zone.
Maverick was key to the Eels success last season winning its Florida Division finishing in 1st place; winning the Florida Division playoffs and then advancing to the semi Finals at Nationals. This young man has the unwavering commitment to win. Maverick will do whatever it takes to arrive at that end. We are thrilled that Maverick has returned and he shares all of the returning veterans’ mind set “We have some unfinished business to do here….” Welcome back buddy
