MARINERS ADD SIZEABLE ROOKIE FORWARD ROELENS

PORTLAND, ME – December 27, 2021 – The Mariners have signed rookie forward Metis Roelens to a contract. A 6’4, 205-pound center, Roelens most recently played in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for the Gatineau Olympiques.

Roelens is 21 years old and was born in Roeselare, Belgium. After playing midget hockey in Quebec for the Séminaire St-François Blizzard, he joined Gatineau in 2017-18. In his second QMJHL season, Roelens’ offensive production really took off, as he posted 44 points (18 goals, 26 assists) in 68 games. His 2019-20 season was even better, with 48 points in 56 contests. He stayed on pace in his final junior season – a condensed 2020-21, when he registered 29 points in 31 games for the Olympiques, plus a goal and an assist in four playoff contests.

Metis has a younger brother Milo, an 18-year-old who also plays in the QMJHL for the Sherbrooke Phoenix. The Roelens brothers played together for Gatineau for parts of the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons.
