Ogden Mustangs forward Alex Engan will return for his second season with the team in 2019-20.
“I’m very excited to be coming back,” Engan said. “I want to finish what we started last year and win the Thorne Cup.”
Engan joined the Mustangs at last season’s trade deadline and became a key depth player for the remainder of the regular season and playoffs. He fit in immediately with linemates Ethan McKinley and Aidan McAleer to form the statistically-best fourth line in the Western States Hockey League.
Aidan McAleer had his first two-goal game of the season to help the Mustangs to a big 6-1 victory over the Outliers last weekend. Here’s the second, set up by Alex Engan. #OMHockey @aidanmcaleer21 pic.twitter.com/1zHXPkuNtd

Engan had five points in 10 regular season games and six points, including four goals, in 10 playoff games.
From Wasila, Alaska, standing at 5-feet-10-inches and 185 pounds, and born in 2000, Engan will still have another season of junior hockey eligibility remaining after this season.
