Canadian Levi Cable is returning to the Flames. The 5’11”, 190lb forward was 2nd among team members in goals last season with 26 and added 28 assists for a 54 point campaign in all competitions. The 28 year old was forced into late off season surgery which delayed his signing, but he will now join the club to complete his rehabilitation before being cleared to play in the coming weeks.
Cable spent 5 seasons at USports University of Saskatchewan Huskies where he had 51 goals and 115 points in 140 starts. His efforts helped lead the club to Canada West Conference title during his opening season in 2015-2016 and his final stretch in 2019-2020 as well as berths at the National championship tournament in all 5 terms. He also picked up individual honours along the way with an All-Rookie Team selection during his freshman year, and an All-Tournament Team pick at the 2017 national event. The native of Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan closed out his stay with Canada West and National awards for combination of sportsmanship and ability.
As a Junior, Cable spent 4+ seasons with Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League. After a 5 game taste in 2010-2011, he went on to complete 267 starts while bagging 55 goals and 117 points before heading to school after the 2014-2015 set.
“Levi had a terrific back half of the season and was definitely a target for re-signing when we got fully into the recruitment phase,” said Paul Dixon.
“Unfortunately, a problem that we were not really aware of going into the summer, and something Levi himself did not think was much of an issue turned into something needing attention. It was a set back for him and for us because he could not have possibly been ready for season start, and he will still be ruled out of game action for a period of time even after he arrives.”
“Now that he is back skating, we want him with us so we can help get him ready for the moment when he can get back to game action. He is a really high quality person, and we are looking forward to his arrival in the dressing room and eventually on game night.”
