Former Penn State Hockey Forward Eric Scheid Signs With Florida Everblades

Former speedy Penn State forward Eric Scheid signed with the Florida Everblades, the ECHL affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes.

As a redshirt senior last season, Scheid racked up 28 points off 13 goals and 15 assists — second to only David Goodwin in 2015-16. He left Penn State as the program’s all-time best shorthanded goalscorer with four, a testament to his speed and determination. He started his collegiate career at the University of Alaska-Anchorage where he tallied 15 points in 30 games. In his three seasons as a Nittany Lion, he amassed 77 points — third all-time in program history — off 38 goals and 29 assists.

“Scheid is a top-six player that has elite skill and speed. He can open the game up, and he will be tough to defend,” said Brad Ralph, his new head coach, in a release.

After Penn State, he tried out for the AHL’s Portland Pirates and made three appearances on the team. Scheid will faceoff with former Penn State goaltender P.J. Musico when the Everblades take on the Swamp Rabbits October 14.
