A new North American is joining the PHL, Canadian Alexandre Boivin has signed with GKS Tychy. Tychy signed Boivin to a one-year deal as a team looks to get back to their championship-winning ways. The center finished ninth last year in assists with 33 in France’s Ligue Magnus.
The 27-year-old from Canada’s capital has spent the last two seasons in France’s top league. Over the past two years, he has recorded 64 points (20G-44A-64PTS) in his 63 games. His 33 assists last season were the ninth most in the league. Before moving over to France, Boivin had played four years for Carleton Univ. in Canada. He split his junior hockey days between the Québec Remparts in the QMJHL and with two teams in the CCHL.
The playmaking center should instantly fill a big hole in the GKS Tychy lineup. The former back-to-back Polish championship said goodbye to long-time North American forwards Alex Szczechura and Mike Cichy. Szczechura was tied in the lead for assists on GKS Tychy with 31.
