Braehead Clan have strengthened their roster for the remainder of the 2017/18 season with the signing of Canadian Felix-Antoine Poulin. The Glasgow side announced yesterday that the defenceman had joined their ranks and it comes at a timely moment, with Braehead currently missing a number of key players through injury.

Poulin knows what he to expect in the EIHL having spent last season at the Clan's Gardiner Conference rivals Dundee Stars and in that stint, he was one of the EIHL’s leading defenceman finishing the season as the league’s top goal scoring defenceman and second in overall points while the 28 year-old has spent this season playing for MsHK Zilna in the Slovakian Extraliga.

Braehead Head Coach John Tripp is delighted to have added a player of Poulin's calibre to his squad and is confident he can make a real impact. "When we became aware that Felix-Antoine was looking to make a move away from Slovakia, we didn’t have any hesitation in doing everything we could to bring him here” said Tripp.

“We’ve been looking to add some offensive punch for a while now, with the recent addition of Robert Lepine, we’ve also decided to add some to the backend of the team.

“Our powerplay hasn’t been working the way I want it to, and that’s going to be imperative going into our playoffs push.

“With Felix-Antoine he will be a very important of our powerplay unit. He has a big shot and somewhat of a quarterback which is what I believe we’ve been needing to add.

“We’re delighted to welcome Felix-Antoine to Glasgow and the Braehead Clan.”
