Canadian defender Shawn Boutin has re-signed for Dundee Stars ahead of the 2019/20 season.
Boutin, 29, joined the Stars in 2018 from German side Dresdner Eislowen, and enjoyed a good first year with the club, scoring 27 points in 66 games.
The Kitmart Dundee Stars are delighted to announce the re-signing of Shawn Boutin for season 2019/20!
Stars head coach Omar Pacha said: “Shawn has been a guy I was considering heavily at the end of the season.
“He plays well defensively, he’s steady and similar to Mags (Matt Marquardt) he has very good leadership skills.
“Getting a right-shot defenceman is always tough and he fits that role. I think he is one of those guys that understands what he is good at and he does things well.
“I expect him to be better, just like everybody and I expect him to keep improving and I want him to be a solid guy defensively.”
After signing on for 2019/20, Boutin added: “I am really excited to be back in Dundee for the upcoming season.
“Omar and our owners are building a good hockey culture and I want to be part of it. We have a great fan base and I love the city and Scotland, so it was an easy decision to come back.”
