Andrew Sweetland was born on October 21st, 1986 in Bonavista, NL.
Sweetland has one of the best ice and ball hockey resumes on the X Hockey staff. “Sweets” was a late bloomer in the minor hockey ranks, but burst into the Midget AAA Hockey scene in 2002-03 and never looked back. Sweetland compiled 91 points in 72 OPJHL games (Junior ‘A’) before being traded to Amherst for the 2006-07 season. Sweetland proceeded to break the MHL scoring record in 2006-07, booking an incredible 117 points in just 54 games. These gaudy numbers caught the eye of the University of Maine, who signed Sweetland to a hockey scholarship.
Sweetland needed just one year at the university level, registering 17 points in 28 games before signing a pro deal with the Florida Panthers. While the highly-skilled forward never played in the NHL, Sweetland played 113 AHL games with the Rochester Americans and Binghamton Senators from 2008-2011.
Since moving home in 2011, Sweetland has tore up the NL Senior Hockey circuit; he has 148 career points in just 110 career games with the Clarenville Caribous.
On top of all that, Sweetland was once considered one of the top ball hockey players in the world; Andrew has played for Team Canada at the World level.
Andrew is not only a talented athlete, but is a smart guy as well; Sweetland has obtained his MBA through Memorial University of Newfoundland.
