The Almaguin Spartans are thrilled to announce the signing of 2004 born goaltender Benjamin Launiere. The Ste-Catherine, Quebec native has junior playing experience at the USPHL and GMHL level.
Spartans Goaltending Coach Andre Laperriere had this to say about the addition of Launiere “Ben is a great kid and a promising young goaltender. He has good size at 6’1, great reflexes, a good attitude, he battles, and he is very coachable. I know he has been working with some professional level goalie coaches in Montreal this summer and has been facing quality shots from major junior, college, and professional level players. This level of training has really help prepare Ben for the upcoming season.
He has experienced a lot of success at the Quebec AAA level and at the USPHL level. I feel he is ready to make that next jump in his development and be a strong goaltender at the Junior “A” level. I’m looking forward to having Ben in our program and working with him this season.”
