FJB Elite Set to Host Florida Eels Thursday Night
ESTERO, Fla. – The Florida Jr. Blades Elite team welcomes the Florida Eels to Hertz Arena for the first time this season. This will be the third time overall that these two teams have met this season, the Eels having won both games at their home rink. Jr. Blades Elite dropped the first of these two games by an 8-1 margin back in September, just two days after a four game in four day showcase event in North Carolina. The second of these two meetings was a nailbiter back on Wednesday November 3 with the Florida Eels winning by a score of 3-2.
Rookie forward Thomas FIloramo led the way in scoring for the Jr. Blades, posting a goal in each of the first two meetings with the Florida Eels. Filoramo has also taken over the points lead on the team this season, with 27 total points in 17 games played.
Second year forward Bailey Kaiser has goals in the Jr. Blades last two games against Palm Beach and will be looking to extend this streaking moving into the weekend. In just 18 games played this season he has already matched his previous year’s goal total and is only five points off of his points from last season with 12 less games played so far.
The Jr. Blades and Eels Elite teams will square off at Hertz Arena tonight at 9 PM in the Blue Rink. Tickets for this game are $5 and can be purchased at the door. If you are unable to make it to the game, it can also be streamed online on Hockey TV.
