Junior Extra: the ranking is tightening

Junior Extra: ranking tightens


Despite two honest performances, the Océanic could not stop the winning streak of the Gatineau Olympiques, who left Rimouski with a 15th straight win last Sunday. This had the effect of tightening the fight for third place in the Eastern Conference, still occupied by the Océanic, but only one point ahead of the Saguenéens. With four straight wins, the Moncton Wildcats are within four points of the Océanic with one game in hand over Rimouski and two over the Sags. What caught the eye last week was the closure of the Sun Life Financial Coliseum due to the presence of asbestos.

Under the magnifying glass

Xavier Filion

The 20-year-old forward celebrated his 200th career game in the QMJHL by scoring the only goal for the Océanic on Saturday in the loss against the Olympiques. A 5th round pick of the Saguenéens in 2018, Filion only played six games with this team before joining the Remparts for three seasons and the Océanic this year. He has 32 points in 40 games.

What they said

“We weren't downgraded by one of the best-equipped teams in the game. the league. The guys did not give up in third. We had some good chances after closing the gap to 4 to 2.”

“It's been a busy week. We come back from a three in three and we cannot enter the Colosseum. On Wednesday, I'm told to get ready to play two local games in Gatineau. I was not in a good mood. Fortunately, everything went back to normal on Thursday. »
