Olivier Labelle(27) Rouen Dragons

6th year pro Olivier Labelle(27) re-signs for 2011/2012 with Reading Royals, the ECHL team he spent 38 games with last season, plus 7 in the Kelly Cup Playoffs.

For the other half of the season he was signed to a pto with Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL.

Throughout his career he’s been mostly a AA player with the exception of his rookie season, when he played 74 games with Syracuse Crunch, putting up 11 goals, 20 assists and 153 pims. In the following 4 seasons, he played almost exclusively in the ECHL, until last year’s run with Bridgeport.

After posting a career high 57 points upon his 3rd term with Reading, he decided to take his game across the pond skating for a pair of seasons in Austria with Graz 99ers but saw his scoring diminish in the second campaign to half of what he put up in his initial year.

He decided to return to eastern Pennsylvania for a fourth time in 2014/2015 and further increased his game connecting for more new best marks in goals (30), assists (41), points (71) and plus/minus (+16).

The soon-to-be 30-year old will once again headed overseas signing for a year in France’s Ligue Magnus with Rouen Dragons, where he should have little problem leading the league in multiple categories.
