Canadian forward Taylor MacDougall has signed to the Capitals for the next 2 seasons. The 26 year old centre joins the Capitals from the University of New Brunswick (UNB) which he attended between 2011 and 2016. Playing for UNB he recorded 49 points in 118 games over five seasons and combined playing hockey with achieving a double Major in Business and Law at UNB.
Prior to attending UNB MacDougall played for the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in the Quebec Minor Junior Hockey League. In 289 games in the QMJHL between 2006-2011 he played 289 games and scored 104 points.
MacDougall is a renowned face off specialist who averages an approximate 70% win rate.
Edinburgh Capitals coach Michal Dobron said “MacDougall is a great 2 way forward who will win us the puck, he’s a face off specialist and will dominate physically. He's going to be an important part of my line up. He comes to us straight from winning a CIS University championship at New Brunswick, his second with the team in his five years there. He will bring a winning mentality.”
