SIGNING: Crusaders Sign Poul Andersen for 2024/2025 Season

SHERWOOD PARK, AB: The Sherwood Park Crusaders are proud to announce the signing of forward Poul Andersen (’07) for the 2024/2025 season.

“We are thrilled to see Poul Andersen join our program,” commented Crusaders general manager Adam Sergerie. “His decision to become a Crusader underscores our commitment to developing top-tier talent and maintaining a competitive edge. Poul’s impressive achievements and the strong foundation he brings from his time with the Long Island Gulls align perfectly with our vision for the future. We eagerly anticipate the impact he will have on our team and look forward to an exciting season ahead.”

“We would like to thank Poul’s advisor group, Octagon Hockey and his family for believing in our program and allowing him to continue his development with the Crusaders.”

“We are excited that Poul Andersen has chosen the Sherwood Park Crusaders as the next step in his development,” echoed head coach Brennan Mennard. “Poul viewing our style of play and program as the fit for him next season marks another exciting day for the Crusaders as we continue our pursuit.”

“Welcoming another very talented, and dedicated young player to our organization for the upcoming season that played a very important role in winning a National Championship for the Long Island Gulls U16 team with an extremely detailed and talented coaching staff gives our organization another boost to the already strong influx of talent we’ve announced for next season.”

Last season saw Andersen play for the Long Island Gulls 16U AAA program, where he was part of their US U16 National Championship run. Additionally, the St. Louis Park, MN native played a pair of games for Lincoln Stars of the USHL. 

Andersen is currently committed to the University of Maine (NCAA, Division I) for the 2026/2027 season.
