Stockton, CA. – The Stockton Heat, proudly owned by the NHL’s Calgary Flames, have assigned forward Louick Marcotte to the Adirondack Thunder. The Heat have also released Thuunder players Mike Bergin, Rob Bordson, Kyle Flanagan and Dana Fraser from their training camp tryouts.
Marcotte, 21, is coming off of a 2014-15 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 then fell 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 was originally the first player signed to the Stockton Heat, in June 2015.
