Former Penn State Men’s Hockey Forward Jacques Bouquot Signs With Lehigh Valley Phantoms

Following his final season of eligibility, former Penn State men’s hockey player Jacques Bouquot signed a professional tryout contract with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, the team announced Monday morning. The deal also includes a standard player contract with the Phantoms for the 2024-25 season. The Phantoms are the AHL affiliate of the Philadephia Flyers.

Bouquot was one of the lone bright spots for the Nittany Lions in what was a disappointing 2023-24 season for the team. The Vermont transfer was third on the team in points, amassing 27 points in 34 games played.

Prior to joining Penn State, Bouquot played four seasons at the University of Vermont and was named captain for the 2022-23 season. During his stint with Vermont, Bouquot scored 50 points in 109 games.

Bouquot was the second member of the Nittany Lions to ink a professional hockey contract this month. Forward Xander Laampa signed a contract with the Maine Mariners of the ECHL, the affiliate of the Boston Bruins, on March 13.
