Florida Everblades President and General Manager Craig Brush along with head coach Greg Poss announced Tuesday that the team has agreed to terms with forward Matt Marquardt for the 2012-13 season.

Last season, the 6-3, 229-pound winger totaled 42 points (22g, 20a) in 72 games split between the Everblades (23 pts) and the Bakersfield Condors (19 pts). Marquardt played a key role in the Everblades Kelly Championship last spring registering points (6g, 12a) in 18 playoff appearances. In addition, he scored the game winning goal in overtime to lead Florida to a 4-3 victory in Game Three of the Kelly Cup Finals.

The North Bay, Ontario native accumulated 44 points (15g, 29a) in 180 games played in the American Hockey League in stints with Providence (2008-2010), Springfield (2010), and Oklahoma City (2010-2011). He amassed 164 points during his junior career with the Moncton Wildcats (2005-08) and the Baie-Comeau Drakkar (2008) of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Marquardt was selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the seventh-round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. He was acquired by the Everblades in a trade with Bakersfield on Jan. 6, 2012.
