Another defenseman that is in his rookie season, Levi is playing with the Florida Everblades of the ECHL. Due to the defensive depth the Checkers have at defense, the third-round pick in 2010 was bumped down to the Everblades.
Levi is huge at 6-foot-4 and plays a strong defensive game. He never put up a lot of points in juniors with the Plymouth Whalers, but was a plus-81 through five seasons.
Despite the ECHL not being as strong as a league as the AHL, it gives Levi a chance to work on transitioning his defensive game and improving his offensive game to AHL and NHL levels.
Hopefully for Levi and the Hurricanes, the 21-year-old will get a chance to play with the Checkers at some point this season.
