After he was recently released by the financially stricken Milano Rossoblu side from the AlpsHL, it hasn’t taken long for Guillaume Doucet to find his way back to the EIHL.
He’s had stints in Hull, Nottingham, Cardiff and Milton Keynes, and now for the rest of the season, the one time 40-goal scorer will head to the Glasgow Clan for the rest of the 2018/19 season.
A truly dynamic winger, Doucet is know for his wicked shot and soft hands that will quickly see him become one of the Clan’s most impressive forwards once he gets comfortable in the side.
Before he was part of a series of high earning players for Milan who were released to help release the clubs financial difficulties, he had 16 points in 19 games that includes 11 goals.
With the 32-year-old continuing his fine form over in Italy, it shouldn’t take long until his name is on the scoresheet once he makes his Glasgow debut.
In 231 EIHL League outings he’s managed 215 points including 129 goals, with his best season coming in his time with the Hull Stingrays with 43 goals and 26 assists for 69 points. Since then he’s gone on to win three Erhardt conference championships, the Challenge Cup as well as one league title.
The Clan recently released forward Josh Gratton and did have big skates to fill, and while Doucet isn’t a replacement for the style of player Gratton was, he has a better goal scoring touch that should fit better for the team who look to climb the standings in the latter parts of the season.
Where Doucet fits in the lineup remains to be seen, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see him join a line with perhaps Matt Beca and Scott Pitt, who have a formidable partnership going, with the pair combining for 22 goals in all competitions, with the two assisting each other on 15 of those tallies.
Doucet is expected to arrive in time for next weeks meeting with the Fife Flyers, while the Clan are in Cardiff tonight for their quarterfinal second leg meeting with the Devils in the Challenge Cup.
