Junior Extra: difficult end to the season for the Oceanic


Struggling with a tight schedule, the Océanic is having a difficult end to the season with only two wins in its last 10 games, before this weekend's doubleheader against the Remparts which will end the regular season. Serge Beausoleil's men have lost their six games this season against Patrick Roy's squad, who will surely not ease up in the middle of the fight for the season championship with the Halifax Mooseheads. Despite everything, the Océanic remains in the fight to have the advantage of the ice in the first round of the playoffs. Rimouski is tied with Chicoutimi for fourth in the Eastern Conference, one point behind Moncton. The “Sags” are playing a doubleheader against the Baie-Comeau Drakkar.

Under the magnifying glass


With a goal in each of his team's three games last week, the 19-year-old forward came within a net of the 30 goals he could reach in the two games against the Remparts. He scored 10 goals last year in his first season in the QMJHL. A very nice progression for the great number 64. 

What they said

“My old people showed the way. I am thinking of Verreault, Filion, Dumoulin, Gauthier, Maltais. They were good, they delivered. But, by giving up five goals, you don't give yourself much of a chance of winning.”

– Serge Beausoleil after the loss Sunday.

“I want to thank the entire organization of the Oceanic, our supporters and especially my boarding family. I spent three wonderful years in Rimouski ”

– former Océanic captain Frédéric Brunet before the Sunday's game.
