The creation of the 2024-2025 Ducs d’Angers team continues within the Angers club.

This Wednesday, May 15, the Maine side announced the extension of the contract of one of its key players: striker Philippe Halley.

The Canadian arrived in Angers in 2020 and has just completed his fourth season in the Dukes jersey. Philippe Halley has re-signed for one season at Angers.

To date, he has made 170 appearances for the Dukes in domestic competitions with a total of 181 points. In 2021-22 and 2022-23, he was one of the top 10 scorers in the Magnus League, notably completing two regular seasons with 49 points on the clock.

170 matches, 181 points

Last year, an injury kept him away from the ice for several months, which explains his presence in only 23 of the 44 regular season matches. Hence the statistics are less high than those he displayed when he was notably associated with his childhood friend, Tommy Giroux since their arrival in Angers. This season, the duo was separated, with Giroux signing for Denmark.

Since the elimination in the quarter-finals of the Magnus League, new faces have arrived at the club: those of a coach, Jonathan Paredes, two defenders: Lucien Onno and Jere Rouhiainen and a goalkeeper Elliot Lévêque.

Philippe Halley is the fifth element of the Dukes to extend after Prapavessis, Orlov, Fauvel and Torquato, the assistant coach.

The club also recorded the departures of coach Jason O’Leary, Scherbak, Cowley, Manavian and Ross.
