The Prince Albert Raiders of the WHL have reassigned 1999-born forward Yauheni (pronounced Yev-GENN-ee) “Gino” Astrouski to the Drumheller Dragons for the 2016-17 AJHL season.
Astrouski is a 6'1″ power forward who last season played for the SSAC Athletics out of Edmonton, tallying 11 goals and 18 assists in 34 games. Originally from Belarus, Astrouski and his family moved to Edmonton so he could play hockey as a 15 year old in Canada.
“There's no question he can play the game,” said Dragons Head Coach and GM. “He's a strong skater with excellent hockey sense. From what I have seen so far there is a lot of talent to work with. We look forward to working with Yauheni over the next several months.”
