Shawville-born hockey player Darien Plouffe has signed an Amateur Tryout deal with the Toronto Marlies of the AHL – the affiliate team of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Amateur tryouts are short-term but renewable deals that give teams a chance to see at what a player would look like in their lineup.
Plouffe just finished his fourth season with the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) Niagara University Purple Eagles, who missed the playoffs.
During his time at Niagara, Plouffe served as the team captain and posted career highs with an impressive 17 goals and 18 assists for 35 points in as many games.
Plouffe was also nominated for the most prestigious award in U.S. college hockey – the Hobey Baker Award – which is given out to players that excel on the ice, in the classroom and in their community.
