Playing career[edit]

Undrafted, Cheverie spent four seasons at Miami University before turning pro in 2002 with the ECHL's Cincinnati Cyclones. He also had spells in the American Hockey League with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers and the United Hockey League with the Columbus Stars before returning to the ECHL with the Long Beach Ice Dogs in 2004. His performances of 29 goals and 68 points in 72 games helped him become an ECHL All-Star.

In 2005, Cheverie moved to the United Kingdom, signing with the Coventry Blaze, scoring 20 goals and 52 points, playing mostly as a defenceman to cover for injuries. His outstanding performances earned him a place in the First Team Elite League All-Star selection team. Cheverie then moved to France playing for Morzine-Avoriaz and then in Norway for Vålerenga IF Oslo where he continued to produce impressive numbers. In 2008, Cheverie returned to the UK, signing for the Belfast Giants, reuniting with Welsh goaltender Stevie Lyle, who were teammates in France.

On June 6, 2010, he signed for Lillehammer IK in Get-Ligaen for the 2010–11 season.[1]
