It was in college that Angel Soutuyo found that athletic training combined two of his favorite things: sports and medicine. Now in his sixth season with the Portland Pirates and his ninth year as an athletic trainer, Angel has learned that one of the most important things about being an athletic trainer is maintaining composure in a fast-paced environment.

As head trainer, Angel acts as liaison between players, doctors and coaches. His main responsibility lies in getting players back on the ice. Seeing a player rehabilitated and playing again is the most rewarding part of his job, says Angel.

Although he loves his job with the Pirates, Angel dreams of someday working as head trainer in the National Hockey League. Ideally, he would like to work for a team that would bring him closer to his family in the Washington DC area.

Angel attended the Catholic University of America in DC and was most recently employed as athletic trainer and equipment manager of the Quad City Mallards, the Capitals' United Hockey League (UHL) affiliate based in Illinois. He is a member of the Professional Hockey Athletic Trainers Society. Angel was also chosen as head trainer for the PlanetUSA All- Star team during the 2003 Dodge All-Star Classic which was comprised of American and European hockey players.
