Men’s Hockey Forward Eric Scheid Trying Out With AHL’s Portland Pirates

Penn State hockey forward Eric Scheid agreed to an amateur tryout agreement (ATO) with the Florida Panthers’ AHL affiliate Portland Pirates on Wednesday.

Penn State men’s hockey announced the signing during the same week that Scheid’s fellow teammates and goalies Matt Skoff and Eamon McAdam signed professional contracts, but Scheid is the only player of the three without any collegiate eligibility remaining to sign with a professional team.

Eric Scheid spent his freshman year at one of head coach Guy Gadowsky’s former clubs, Alaska Anchorage, and transferred to Penn State the following season. Scheid has played in more than 30 games in every season since joining the Penn State program in 2013, and made a name for himself with his speed.

Known for his aggressiveness on the breakaway, Scheid departs from the program ranking in the top five of four major scoring categories for Penn State. He’s No. 3 all-time in total points with 77, No. 2 in goals with 38, No. 5 in assists with 39, and tied at No. 1 in short-handed goals with four.

The Penn State star ends his four-year college career with 92 points, 44 goals, and 48 assists. Scheid will now continue his hockey career with the Florida Panthers’ AHL affiliate.
