The Komets announced Tuesday that forward Dean Ouellet has agreed to terms and becomes the first player to be officially named to the 2015-16 roster.
Ouellet, who will be 28 this summer, will be returning to Fort Wayne after appearing in 16 regular season games (1g, 10pts) and nine playoff games (4g, 6pts) during the 2013-14 season. Ouellet began that year appearing in 38 games with San Francisco of the ECHL. Ouellet was acquired by Fort Wayne after leading the Bulls with 20 assists and 30 points before becoming a free agent due to San Francisco’s demise.
Last year the Edmundston, New Brunswick native skated 26 games with Lyon in the French Elite league, ranking second on the Lions with 11 goals and placed fifth with 21 points. 2015-16 will be Ouellet’s fourth pro year after making his pro debut with San Francisco in 2012-13.
During 2012-13 Ouellet ranked third among ECHL rookies with 24 goals and tied for fourth with 52 points in 66 games while earning a spot on the All-Star Team. Ouellet also made his AHL debut appearing in five games with Hamilton.
