Florida Eels Are Thrilled to Announce the Signing of Top Swedish Defenseman Lukas Aaw to its Premier Team.

 

Lukas also played for Vallentuna BK J20 Elite and Division I last season. Previously he played SDE HF J20 Division I and J18 Elite. GM Scarpaci notes, “The Eels  had Lukas on their radar for some time and had their scouts watching him for some time…. we were set on signing him when he arrived last May for the prestigious Pro-Am NHL Pre-Draft Showcase” . Premier Coach Frank Scarpaci notes, “He has incredible skill set. Has great vision and quarter backs the defensive zone.  We love the way Aaw controls the game. He plays the Eels style of defense…. Joining in the line rush.  He is a solid defenseman in all 3 zones.” GM Scarpaci says Lukas plays a lot like Eels alumni Brien Thompson who plays for NCAA Division III Nichols College.   We can see he will be an immediate impact player for us.
