Fadden has failed to register a point in only 3 of his 18 games this year. Wednesday night he had two primary assists and Bobby Goepfert stopped 29 shots for the first Blades shutout of the year. Geopfert was a 2002 sixth round pick of the Kings. He played in Germany last season. Hutchings was back in the lineup for Florida after being what is presumed to be a healthy scratch Tuesday night.

One game after having his point streak stopped at 10 games, Fadden came up big for the Everblades, scoring twice to help the team snap a 3-game losing streak. Fadden’s goals extended Florida’s leads to 2-0 and 4-1. The first came on a strong move to the net and the second on a slap shot from the top of the left circle, according to the Everblades. Janus, who was getting extra practice time with the coaching staff Wednesday, watched as Bobby Goepfert stopped 35 of 37 for the game’s First Star award. Hutchings, meanwhile, hasn’t registered a point in 5 games. Fadden, who had a game-high 8 shots, now sits in fourth in the league in scoring with 19 points, 2 behind Elmira’s Michael Dubuc and Justin Donati.
