MacDougall Signs With Edinburgh

The Edinburgh Capitals of Britain's Elite Ice Hockey League has signed recent UNB graduate Taylor MacDougall to a two year contract the team has announced.

MacDougall just wrapped up a very successful five year career with the V-Reds, helping lead UNB to its 6th National Championship in school history in March. The 26 year old centre, known more for his prowess in the face-off circle and on the penalty kill, posted a career-high 13 points (7 goals, 6 assists) in 27 regular season games this year. Overall, he amassed 49 points in 118 career regular season games while at UNB.

He was held scoreless in four contests after signing with the ECHL's Brampton Beast after the V-Reds season ended.

The EIHL features some familiar faces to AUS fans as Edinburgh recently signed former UPEI Panther Mason Wilgosh and former V-Reds Travis Fullerton, Thomas Nesbitt, and Chris Culligan all played in the league last season.
