Moving players on to the next level is something Langton Royals head coach and general manager Jason DoPaco takes great pride in. This week he was all smiles, seeing one of his players sign a pro contract.
On Monday, forward Felix Mailhot signed a professional contract with IFK Ore,
The club plays in group C of Sweden’s third tier league,
“We are very proud of Felix as an organization and we know he will do great in Sweden and progress his career further,” DoPaco said. “Felix had a great season with us. He was a go to guy on power plays, penalty kills, and on 5-on-5 . He possesses a large frame and great speed to go with it. He has a great shot and is smart. He is also easy to coach. He will be a great addition to IFK Ore.”
Last season with the Royals, Mailhot, from Montreal, posted 18 goals and 38 points in 27 games.
While Mailhot is going to be a big hole to fill. DoPaco is still looking to fill out his roster. If you are interested, contact DoPaco at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While there is much uncertainty to organized hockey thanks to the Covid-19 virus, the Canadian Premier Junior Hockey League has already stated the season will be played as planned.
