READING, PA – December 30, 2019 – The Mariners have signed forward Eddie Matsushima to a standard player contract, the team announced on Monday. Matsushima joins the Mariners from the Pensacola Ice Flyers of the Southern Professional Hockey League, and has also played two ECHL games this season for the Orlando Solar Bears.

After two years at Verona High School which included a stint on Team Wisconsin, Matsushima joined the NAHL’s Coulee Region Chill (La Crosse, WI) and played there for three full seasons from 2012-15.

He was named to the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic All-Conference Team both seasons and was also a WIAC Scholar Athlete as a senior in 2018-19.

Matsushima joined the SPHL’s Pensacola Ice Flyers after graduating last season, and put up 13 points in 14 regular season games. He’s off to a strong start this season, with 20 points (8 goals, 12 assists) in 19 games for the Ice Flyers – ranking second on the team in scoring.
