JACKSONVILLE, FL – The Jacksonville Icemen, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets and AHL’s Manitoba Moose announced Thursday that high-scoring forward Alexis D’ Aoust has been reassigned to the team by Manitoba of the AHL.
D’Aoust, 22, returns to Jacksonville where he played a key role in the Icemen’s 5-0-0 start to the 2018-19 season. The 6-0, 201-pound winger recorded a whopping 12 points in five games played with Jacksonville this season before earning a call-up to Manitoba.
D’Aoust (pronounced dah-OO) has 32 career points (17g, 16a) in two AHL seasons split between Manitoba and the Utica Comets.
