Fournier agrees new Devils deal

Defender Gleason Fournier has signed for another season with Cardiff Devils.

The 25-year-old scored 13 goals with 33 assists in 66 games last term. Fournier originally joined the Devils in January 2016 from the ECHL’s Alaska Aces.

Player/Coach Andrew Lord said: “Gleason was a major part of our success last season and we are very pleased to get him back for another year.

“He just controls the puck so well and he is one of the best skaters I have ever seen.

“I know for a fact he could have gone to a higher-level league, but being in the Champions Hockey League and the opportunity to have another great year were both a real draw for him to come back.

“He scored some huge goals for us and he puts himself in situations to be an offensive threat while still being so good defensively.”
