The Grande Prairie Storm of the Alberta Junior Hockey League are excited to announce the signing of veteran forward Vincet Milot-Ouellet.
The 20-year-old, originally drafted by the Gatineau Olympiques, played a combined 165 regular season games in the Quebec Major Junior League scoring 25 goals and registering 40 assists for 65 points. Matt Keillor, Head Coach & Associate General Manager, thinks Ouellet will help solidify the Storms offence this season:
“Ouellet is a highly skilled cerebral player who can play center or wing. He gives us more scoring depth right away and will make our Power Play a major threat. We targeted a young but very specific recruiting class of elite speed and skill this year. With Vincent we feel he will instantly make those young guys better. He’s very excited about the fan base here and most importantly he says he’s coming here to win. He’s a very quiet personality but plays with intensity on both sides of the puck and I have no doubt he will be a major scoring threat in the AJHL.”
When asked if Vincent can reproduce some of the offence that has departed with graduating forwards Dallas Comeau, Edouard Michaud and Justin Bernier, Matt was quick to point out there is opportunity still untapped on the team:
“To have 3 point-per game players returning is pretty rare at our level (referring to veteran forwards Connor Blake, Jarrod Power and AJHL Rookie of the Year Zachary Okabe). “They’re all special players and provide a unique skill set in their own way and with Connor steering the ship as our captain they’re in good hands and we know this will be a special team. We will hopefully have some more announcements over the next few weeks as we get closer to main camp. It was important to us as a group to build a sustainable program that becomes a premier destination for players across North America and we feel with announcements like today and future announcements we are on the right track.”
