RIMOUSKI | After a few days in Montreal where he met Guy Lafleur and participated in numerous meetings and sports, the captain of the Océanic de Rimouski, Alexis Lafrenière, has resumed training for the clash on Friday against the Armada of Blainville-Boisbriand.
“It was a nice experience and a nice meeting with Guy Lafleur. We’ve talked about a little anything, of life in general. He gave me a few tips. The Armada is still working very hard. It will have to be ready to work hard we also. Things are going well, but he must not let go. We still lack a few elements, but the chemistry begins to settle”, he mentioned.
Return of Soucy
The Océanic will be able to count on the return to the game of the attacker in La Pocatière, Ludovic Soucy, after a few weeks of absence due to injury. Defender Justin Bergeron trained with a sweater powder blue reserved for players whose contacts are prohibited, on Thursday. “His case is uncertain for tomorrow. There we left due to an injury in the third period last Sunday,” said the head coach of the Océanic Serge Beausoleil, after training on Thursday. Adam Raska and Frédéryck January are still injured.
10 straight wins
About the series of 10 consecutive victories, the coach ensures that it is not a question in the locker room. “We don’t talk about it. What I do know is that the Armada has defeated three times this year and he will have to work hard to win tomorrow.”
After three games in less than 48 hours late last week, Serge Beausoleil, gave leave to its players on two occasions this week, in addition to holding two good training sessions on the ice and teaching video. “It was more important to rest as to train. Things are going well, but there are still a lot of things to improve. The chemistry is good. The guys tease each other and hang out, but there is still a lot of work to do before the series,” added Serge Beausoleil.
The defender of 19 years, Anthony Loves, likes what he sees from his team. “We want to continue to improve our game. We have a good team, well balanced. Everyone plays well. The trio of Collin, Martel and Bourret also gives us the big hockey”.
Colten Ellis and Creed Jones will all see two of the action at the end of the week against the Armada and the Remparts on Friday and Sunday, but the order was not yet determined Thursday afternoon.
