Martineau Excited to Hit the Ice in Fife

Fife Flyers Ice Hockey Club are pleased to announce the addition of 5’10” centreman Phélix Martineau for the 24/25 season. 

A Quebec native, Phélix spent 4 seasons with the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles of the Quebec Junior Hockey League playing 3 of those seasons alongside our other recent signing, Olivier LeBlanc. Another player noted for his leadership qualities, Phélix took over the ‘C’ for the Screaming Eagles for the 17/18 season after LeBlanc’s junior career came to an end. 

Originally set to head to the Concordia University Stingers in 2018, Phélix deferred this and took up the offer to play in the East Coast Hockey League instead. He played 3 regular-season games with the Fort Wayne Komets, who were the Montreal Canadiens’ ECHL affiliate at the time, and went on a playoff run with them to the Conference final. 

Phélix’s impressive play in Fort Wayne earned him a contract with the American Hockey League’s Laval Rockets for the 18/19 campaign which saw him split his time between the Komets in the ECHL and the Rockets in the AHL posting 25 points. Having played professionally, Phélix had to take a year off from hockey in 19/20 before taking up his place at university. Unfortunately the 20/21 season was then cancelled by USports. After two years of no play, Phélix finally hit the ice with the Concordia Stingers whilst commencing his studies in industrial engineering. During his time with the Stingers, Phélix registered an average of a point per game.

On signing with the Flyers Phélix stated “I am very happy and excited for the opportunity to join the club for next season! I can’t wait to get to Fife and get things going.”

Head Coach Tom Coolen added “Phélix competes and can play in every situation. He is a good right handed shooter and he is a welcome addition to the team.”
