ECHL: two Quebecers invited to the star game


The ECHL has announced the identities of the 26 players invited to its all-star game, which will take place on January 26 in Norfolk, Virginia, and two Quebecers are on the list.&nbsp ;

Montreal defender Olivier Galipeau is the sole representative of the Trois-Rivières Lions, the Canadiens' training club. This season, he leads the backs of the Mauricie squad with five goals and 15 points in 19 games. 

Galipeau even had the right to an audition with the Laval Rocket, with whom he had played 18 games in 2021-2022. He was cleared of the score sheet in five games in the American League.

This means that Anthony Beauregard, who sits at the top of the Lions scorers with 20 points in 24 games, n was not invited to the all-star game.

The other Quebecer invited is rather the native of Magog Patrick Guay, of the Ghost Pirates of Savannah. The former Charlottetown Islanders and Sherbrooke Phœnix scored eight goals and 20 points in 17 games.

Members of the Norfold Admirals, host club, as well as two players from the Premier women's hockey organizations Hockey Federation and Professional Women's Hockey Players Association will also participate in the All-Star Game.
