The Langton Royals have announced the signing of defenseman Olivier Beaulieu for the 2019-20 CPJHL season.

Beaulieu, who goes 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, is another product out of Somang Academy in Quebec.

“We are very happy to sign Olivier," said Royals coach-GM Jason Do Paco. "He will bring some added size to our blue line, the right attitude and work ethic, and leadership for the younger defensemen on our team. This is another great connection with Somang. We know the product they produce in players and are very pleased with it. We would like to thank Somang for developing another great player."

Beaulieu is stoked to wear the Royals colors in due time.

"The organization looks really good and after doing my research, I learned a lot of good things about the team," Beaulieu said. "I would like to grow as a person and a player and I know I can learn a lot from Coach Jason and Coach Mark to reach these goals. I have goals to play for as long as I can at the highest level possible and hopefully create a career in Europe."
