The Flin Flon Bombers are pleased to announce the signing of forward Cabrel LaBossiere (03).
“Cabrel isn’t only a physical threat, he is an intelligent player that oozes skill and has a history of producing at each level. He has elite level offensive upside; difficult to disengage from the puck and has the ability to create offence. He has good puck handling ability and is comfortable using his long reach to his advantage. Cabrel is a competitor with a work ethic that is difficult to match.” – Bombers Manitoba Scout, Mark Patton
LaBossiere (6’4, 210lbs.) is a former 3rd round WHL draft pick by the Brandon Wheat Kings and has spent the previous 3 seasons with the Eastman Selects U18 AAA Program. In 74 regular season games with the Selects, LaBossiere produced 46 points (25 g, 21 a). In 2017-18 Cabrel was the team captain for the Eastman Selects U15 AAA Program. LaBossiere had a monster season putting up 56 points (26 g, 30 a) in just 32 games.
“We are very excited to add a player with Cabrel’s size and skill set. We feel there is tremendous upside to his game. He has a great work ethic on and off the ice. I know he’s put in a ton of work in the gym in the last few months which is going to translate to success on the ice.” – Bombers Head Coach & General Manager, Mike Reagan
LaBossiere is the 4th player from the Eastman Selects U18 AAA Program to sign with the Bombers in the last 2 years (Drayden Kurbatoff, Ethan McColm and Matt Egan.)
“I’m super excited to be a part of a successful organization like Flin Flon. I’ve heard nothing but great things about the team and community and I can’t wait for the upcoming season.” – Cabrel LaBossiere
The Bombers would like to welcome Cabrel and his family to the Flin Flon Bombers organization!
