Another Quebecer gets along with the Rocket

UPGRADE DAY

Quebec forward Brandon Gignac signed a new two-year contract with the Laval Rocket of the American League on Saturday.

It's about a one-sided pact, valid for the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 seasons.

Aged 24, Gignac spent the last campaign with the Rocket, registering 10 goals and 16 assists in 48 games regular season. The Repentigny native added nine points, including five goals, in 13 playoff games, helping the Montreal Canadiens farm club reach the Eastern Conference final.

Earlier this week, the Rocket announced a new one-year, one-way deal with forward Danick Martel. The team also offered a similar contract to Xavier Simoneau.
