The Rocket recalls a Guardian

The Rocket recalls a goalkeeper


The Laval Rocket recalled Trois-Rivières Lions goaltender Joe Vrbetic on Monday. 

The 20-year-old athlete is currently playing his first campaign among professionals. The 2021 seventh-round pick of the Montreal Canadiens has posted an .881 save percentage and 3.53 goals-against average in 10 games in the ECHL.

The Rocket needed a goaltender after Cayden Primeau was injured in last Saturday's game. The latter was hit in the face by a stick, while acting as a substitute. He was therefore on the bench when he had bad luck.

The CH club in the American Hockey League will play its next game on Wednesday evening. For the occasion, he will visit the Comets of Utica.
