The Fresno Falcons have signed Center Derek Ladouceur
for the 1999-2000 season. The Ottawa, Ontario native returns to North America
after spending last season with Timmendorf, of the German Elite League,
where he ranked in the top ten in Germany in goals, assists, and points.
This will be his first professional season in North America.
Falcon Head Coach Blaine Moore said of the play-making
Ladouceur, "He is a very gifted passer, one who sees the ice very well.
Derek will make an excellant addition to our power play unit."
