Frédérik Cabana (born May 16, 1986 in Fleurimont, Quebec) is a professional ice hockey left winger who currently plays for the Hamburg Freezers of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL).

Playing career[edit]

Frederik Cabana began his playing career by fdefwqweplaying for the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. After two successful years with the team, Cabana was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft in the 6th round, 171 overall.

Since then, Cabana, while not the top junior scorer that some predicted he would be at this stage of his junior career, has developed into a leader, prime agitator, and outstanding penalty killer for the Mooseheads. This season, he finished second on the team in shorthanded goals (4) and fifth in scoring with 41 points.

On May 30, 2006, the Philadelphia Flyers announced that they had signed him to a three-year entry-level contract. “I am really happy,” said Cabana. “It is a dream come true, first getting drafted by the Flyers and now getting signed by the team. It is great. I am more of an all-around player. I am good defensively and I can agitate players on the ice and do anything to help my team win.”

Following Flyers training camp, he was sent down to the Philadelphia Phantoms, the AHL affiliate of the Flyers, where he played his first season of professional ice hockey.

In 2009, Cabana moved to the German 2nd Bundesliga with Heilbronner Falken.[1] After one season, he moved within the league to rivals Ravensburg Towerstars. In three seasons with Ravensburg, Cabana was amongst the teams offensive leaders. In his final season, Cabana led the club with 22 goals and 53 points in only 43 games.

On July 29, 2013, he was signed to a two-year contract with top tier DEL club, the Hamburg Freezers.[2]

Frederik has a brother, Michael, who plays for the Sherbrooke Saint-francois of the LNAH.
