Flames sign Levi Cable

Canadian forward Levi Cable is the latest addition to the Flames roster.  The 5’11”, 190lb skater spent 5 seasons at USports University of Saskatchewan Huskies where he had 51 goals and 115 points in 140 starts.  His efforts helped lead the club to Canada West Conference title during his opening season in 2015-2016 and his final stretch in 2019-2020 as well as berths at the National championship tournament in all 5 terms. The 26 year old also picked up some individual honours along the way with an All-Rookie Team selection during his freshman year, and an All-Tournament Team pick at the 2017 national event.  The native of Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan closed out his stay with Canada West and National awards for combination of sportsmanship and ability.  

As a Junior, Cable spent 4+ seasons with Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League.  After a 5 game taste in 2010-2011, he went on to complete 267 starts while bagging 55 goals and 117 points before heading to school after the 2014-2015 set.

“Levi was another guy who was meant to start with us last season had we gone ahead,” said Head Coach Paul Dixon. “When we got back in touch, he was very excited to be able to get the chance to join us and so were we.”

“A couple of seasons back I was at the national championships to look at some guys, and Levi was a memorable player. He is a physically strong player who plays a 200 foot game. He can skate, he can handle the puck sensibly and he is able to be an offensive contributor.”

“Although he had graduated, he was able to spend some ice time skating with his old team last season while they continued to train during the pandemic shut down so we expect at his age it will not take too long to feel good being back in a competitive situation.”
