A third year pro Cloutier returns to Kalamazoo after starting the season in Norway with Frisk Akser. Cloutier has played parts of three seasons with the K-Wings.
Unlike the past two seasons with Kalamazoo, Cloutier joins the team as a defenseman. The native of Berkley, Michigan has also played on the blue-line for Frisk Asker, where he posted 10 points (5 goals, 5 assists) in 26 games.
Before turning pro, Cloutier played two seasons of junior hockey and was a four-year standout at Bentley University.
