Former Penn State Men’s Hockey Captain Alex Limoges Shines In AHL Rookie Year

Penn State hockey’s former captain Alex Limoges has made a name for himself throughout his rookie year in the American Hockey League (AHL).

After registering his 21st goal of the year, Limoges has now scored the most goals for a rookie ever within the San Diego Gulls organization. On the season, Limoges has also tallied 13 assists to combine for 34 points across 53 games so far this season.

Limoges’ success comes after an impressive four years as a Nittany Lion. He ranks third all-time in points (125) and goals (51) for Penn State’s program and stands fourth all-time in assists (74). He also holds the conference record for most all-time points in the Big Ten Tournament with 17.

After finishing his time at Penn State, Limoges signed a try-out contract with the Gulls, the Anaheim Ducks’ affiliate, for the remainder of the 2020-21 season. He performed well and later re-signed with the club.

Last month, Limoges was named AHL Player of the Week after recording his first career hat trick. That week, he racked up seven goals and an assist to combine for eight points across four games.

The Gulls will finish up this season at the end of the month with nine games remaining. Limoges has the chance to continue playing well and perhaps earn a shot at the NHL someday soon.
