Reports out of France are that the Blades have signed French forward Luc Tardif Jr. The story, in French, can be found here. I’ll quote the translated article here though.
“Luc Tardif Jr is still Rouen but not for long. The athletic wing of the France team (1.92 m, 100 kg) income for Dragons de Rouen (Seine-Maritime), in his original club, there are two seasons to stuff yourself with national honors (Magnus Cups, a Cup of France, one League Cup, a champions Trophy), toured the question hexagonal.
So the young man of 26 has signed a contract with FloridaEverblades, a club of the ECHL South Division (East Coast Hockey League), one of the American professional leagues in early October. In the meantime, until the end of September, it remains licensed in Rouen. And of course that it will deceive his possible new team during the camp …”
His stats from Elite prospects-
A video of him mixing it up with a Danish hockey player in a “friendly” international game-
There hasn’t yet been an official announcement from the Blades about him being signed.
Actually, there’s been no word from the Blades about anything.
If he is in fact signed by the Blades he looks promising. It’s going to be a big adjustment after all those years playing Euro hockey to be dropped into the ECHL and the North American style of hockey, but he looks scrappy, I think he’ll be fine.
