Dundee Stars have this morning announced the arrival of young forward Anthony Beauregard for the 2019/20 season.
Coming in from the ECHL’s Brampton Beast, Beauregard the 23-year-old moved to Indy Fuel in 2016 after three full seasons in the QMJHL where he scored 223 points in 207 games. After 21 games for the Fuel he switched to Concordia University for the remainder of that, and the full 2017-18 season, making a return of 77 points in 39 regular season games. Beauregard also had a brief 10-game stint with Laval Rocket in the AHL that year, before going back to the ECHL in Brampton last season, putting up 29 points in 71 games.
“We really wanted to add a bit more skill upfront, and Anthony is a guy that was a CIS player of the year two years ago. He is a highly skilled guy and his vision is incredible,” said Head Coach Omar Pacha on his latest addition to the Stars. “He is a small guy that always competes really hard but as I said we were looking for a skilled guy to be a top six forward and I think he will fit perfectly. We want to try to get a few guys to have a lot of potential, Anthony is only 23-years old.”
He continued: “Being a right-handed shot as well, he still managed to score goals in the CIS and juniors, so you can tell he has offence and maybe last year he was playing a role that wasn’t the best for him and now we are looking for more offensive production from him.”
On his move to Tayside, Beauregard added: “I am really excited, it is going to be my first year in Europe. I know some guys there like Shaun (Boutin), and I know some things from what the Head Coach has told me, I think it is going to be fun. From the conversations I had with Omar, I just found that it was a perfect fit for me to come to Dundee. I just want to prove to everybody that I can be a good player.”
