As we continue our ‘Look Back’ series, today’s article will highlight one Star Player from the 2017-2018 season and the chosen player is – Marc-Olivier Mimar.

By Kris Smith

The right winger from Rosemère, Quebec joined the Stars in 2017, after icing for Thetford Mines Assurancia in Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey (LNAH) during the previous season.

Mimar only made 16 appearances for Thetford as he joined at the end of the season, once his time at the University of Québec-Trois-Rivières ended.

 

 

In 21 games for UQTR, the Canadian alternative captain, put up 22 points (7 goals + 15 assists) and in his 16 LNAH matches, he added a further 13 points (3+10) to his season total.

Marc had been playing hockey for over 10 years when he signed with the Stars and would make his full professional debut, as well as his European hockey debut when he arrived in Tayside.

The six-foot-one-inch forward begun his career back in 2007 in the Quebec midget leagues before he joined the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) and was drafted by Baie-Comeau Drakkar.

Two seasons later, Mimar would switch across to Acadie-Bathurst Titan and continue his QMJHL career.

Then, in the 2011-2012 campaign, he split the year between the Titan and two Triple A junior teams before then joining the University league, USports for the next four seasons.

 

 

 

In the 2017-2018 season, Marc played on 62 occasions for the Stars and scored 58 points (19 + 39), while racking up 17 penalty minutes.

Mimar quickly made himself known to the Stars fans and opposition as someone who could both score and create goals but he also had a great chemistry with his other linemate from Quebec, Gabriel Lévesque.

However, at the end of the season, the now 28-year-old moved on and would return to the LNAH and Thetford, where he has been playing for the past two years.

Next-up in our ‘Look Back’ series we will be bringing you a special Stats of the Stars for the 2017-2018 season and it will be available here at 12pm tomorrow.
