Another one to Sweden? Yep!

The Essa Stallions are proud to announce the promotion of winger Daniel Bureau, who has signed a contract with Swedish Division 3 club Ockelbo HC.

"Dan was a key contributor to our team since we acquired him at the trade deadline," said Essa head coach Sylvain Cloutier. "His experience really helped solidify our lineup, and helped push us over the top when it came to our long playoff run. They are getting a very talented hockey player. Responsible in both ends, but can excel when put in the right situations offensively."

"The acquisition of Dan mid-season and having him fit in with our guys in the locker room was a true indication of how great of a human being he is on and off the ice," added Stallions assistant coach and GM David Lang. "They will love having him around and hopefully, his game translates to the big ice over there."

in 21 games with the Stallions after being acquired in a trade from the Grey Highlands Hawks, Bureau tallied nine goals and 12 assists for 21 points in 14 games.
