"Jordan is productive two-way defenseman with years of AHL experience," said Everblades coach Greg Poss, who begins his fourth year behind the Blades' bench. "He's also familiar with our situation, having played here a few years ago. We expect him to provide scoring and leadership on the back end."

During the 2007-08 season, Henry played 20 games for the Everblades, tallying two goals and two assists with a plus-one rating.

Nielsen, 25, comes to the Blades after appearing in two games for the Crunch last year.

"Carl tested as one of the best-conditioned players at the Tampa Bay Lightning camp," said Poss. "He's got a lot of size, is a very strong skater and will always defend his teammates on the ice."

In other moves Thursday, defenseman Austin Levi, 21, and forward Kellan Tochkin, 22, were reassigned to the Everblades by the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL.

Tochkin was part of last week's three-player trade between the Hurricanes and the Vancouver Canucks.

All training camp on-ice sessions at Germain Arena are free and open to the public.

The Everblades open the 2013-14 season with Black Out Night against the Orlando Solar Bears Oct. 18 at Germain Arena.

Individual game tickets are on sale at the arena box office Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
