Louick Marcotte becomes the first player signed to the Stockton Heat after inking a two-way, AHL-ECHL contract
Stockton, Calif. – The Stockton Heat, proudly owned by the NHL’s Calgary Flames, announce the first signing in team history as Louick Marcotte (Lew-ick Mar-cot), a forward out of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL)
Marcotte, 21, is coming off of a terrific season that saw him lead his Gatineau Olympiques team in goals with 36 and points with 76 during the regular season. Gatineau would beat Blainville-Boisbriand in the first round of the QMJHL playoffs but would fall in the quarterfinals to the eventual league champion, Rimouski Oceanic.
The 6-foot-1, 194 lb. right wing previously captured a QMJHL Championship while with Val-d’Or Foreurs in 2013-14. Marcotte was one of five QMJHL players to register 100 or more points during the regular season (42 goals and 58 assists in 67 games played).
En route to the QMJHL Championship and a berth to the 2014 Memorial Cup with Val-d’Or, Marcotte was third in the league with 37 points in 24 postseason games played.
Marcotte becomes the first player signed to the Stockton Heat, the new AHL affiliate of the Calgary Flames.
