The Louisiana IceGators
would like to announce the signing of 26 year old, defenseman, Eric Tallent. This will be Eric’s third year with the Gators. At 6’0, 190 lbs, the Garland, Texas native brings skill to the d-line.
Tallent started his professional career with the IceGators in 2010. Prior to this he played 2 years of junior hockey for the Weyburn Red Wings of the SJHL (Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League) and 4 years at Norwich University. In two seasons with the IceGators Eric has played 57 games and has scored 3 goals, 14 assist for 17 points. Head Coach Kevin Kaminski
feels Tallent solidifies the IceGators D-Core and brings the full package to the team. “Eric has everything and does everything well. He has size, toughness, is a great skater, great passer and has a killer shot,” said Kaminski. “This is the year Eric needs to bring his “A” game as he has the potential to get to the next level. However, he has to prove himself every day.”
