Austin Levi

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.
