Pete Rouleau signs with the Port Huron Icehawks

Former Brahmas forward returns home to play in IHL

The Port Huron Icehawks (IHL) announced today that they have signed former Brahmas forward Pete Rouleau to their injury-laden roster.

Rouleau, a native of Hancock, Michigan, returned to his home state after playing eight games with the Brahmas this season. Last season, he scored 36 points (13 G, 23 A, 0) in 52 games played during the regular season. In the playoffs, he tallied nine points (4 G, 5 A, +6), including two power play goals in 14 games culminating with the winning of the Ray Miron President’s Cup.

The 26-year old forward began his collegiate career at Finlandia College and led the team in points during his freshman season, with 39 points in just 25 games. He then transferred to Michigan Tech and after a slow first season with the team, hit his stride and scored 30 points his junior season and 29 points during his senior campaign. He led the team in scoring both seasons and was named most improved player his junior season and team MVP his senior year.

After graduating from Tech, the forward played seven games in the ECHL, including one game with the Idaho Steelheads and six with the Pensacola Ice Pilots.

Rouleau joins former Fort Worth Brahmas Larry Sterling (G) and Cory Stillman (C) who also play with the Icehawks. He is expected to play in his first game tonight against the first place Muskegon Fury (where former Brahmas Travis Banga and Robin Big Snake play). The Icehawks are in second place in the IHL with an 11-5-0-1 record.
