Laval Quebec — Chris Cloutier is back in the LNAH for a thirteenth season having re-signed with the Laval Predators.
“I’m happy to be back for a thirteenth season. I’m happy to be back in the league, and I’m happy to have signed with Laval”, says Cloutier.
Cloutier was a fan favourite enforcer for the Cornwall River Kings and many fans were sad when he was traded to Laval last season.
To date Cloutier has 299 career fights under his belt and over 2,000 penalty minutes.
However last season Cloutier only had 15 fights due to an injury.
“My hands healed up great. I had the summer off, and they had time to heal. I also lost about 25 lbs and I am in game shape. I’m 32 now, and it’s important to be in top shape if I want to keep going”, explains Cloutier.
The 6’1 fighter arrived to training camp in splendid condition.
River Kings fans will be able to see Cloutier back in action when Laval faces off against Cornwall in a weekend series.
