Mustangs add McAleer from Michigan

by Mustangs Staff

The Ogden Mustangs have added 2000-born forward Aidan McAleer for the 2018-19 season.

McAleer spent the past two seasons skating for Meijer AAA Hockey U16  and Fox Motors U15. He comes from a hockey hot bed, calling Lansing,  Mich., home.

McAleer describes his style of play as a hard-working, physical  forward who can put the puck in the net, as well as do the little things  to help win hockey games.

“With a good mix of returners and new guys, I think we should have a  very successful season, especially under the great coaching staff we  have,” McAleer said. “I was attracted to play here because of the  excellent coaching Coach Jake has to offer and all of the success he’s  led past Mustang teams to. I’m very confident that this is going to be a  great season. The fan base is awesome. Seeing a sold out arena always  gets you going, especially in big games. The community here in Ogden has  been overwhelming and has done a great job making this feel like home.”

McAleer stands at 5-feet-10-inches and 160 pounds. He’ll have  another two seasons of junior hockey eligibility remaining after this  one.
