NAME: Ismail Abougouche

TEAM: Fort Saskatchewan Rangers (AEHL U15)

HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6’1, 165 lbs

POSITION: Defenceman

HAND: Left

October 14th, 2020 vs St Albert Sabres – Abougouche is an interesting player to watch. He uses his 6’1, 165 lb frame very effectively separating man from puck fairly often. He’s a puck-moving defenceman who loves to get down the ice and make plays happen. However, that trait is also one of his weakness as he can occasionally get caught down the ice and out of position. Fort Saskatchewan doesn’t have a strong defence, so when does get too far down the ice, he exposes his d-partner. Abougouche is an elite skater and has a calmness to him when he’s in his end with the puck. – Liam Horrobin
