– Reinforcements on the blue line of Baie- Comeau –
Drakkar has chosen to adopt a defensive foolproof by acquiring yesterday back Pierre-Luc Lessard , the Rocket Prince Edward Island . IN return, Baie-Comeau sold three players, including defenders Raphael Neiderer and Myle Gomes and forward Mathieu Tousignant .
” In light of what we saw elsewhere in the league , it was felt that we did not perhaps offensive to rival Halifax , Rouyn-Noranda or Quebec , but we wanted two dominant pairs advocates said the boss of Drakkar hockey , Eric Dubois . With this exchange, now we have four defenders that can be number one or two anywhere in the league .”
” It was considered that Lessard exceeds Sébastien Piché , which was expensive in Rouyn -Noranda. It was therefore necessary to pay the price .”, The Huskies sold two players and choice of first and second rounds to the Shawinigan Cataractes for Piche. Lessard , who was also coveted by the Mooseheads and Remparts, give Baie-Comeau a blue line that will not be easy to cross.
With the departure of Tousignant , who was furious as he left the office of the coach , as Neiderer Drakkar probably has not finished his shopping . ” We are still missing a piece in the front and we think we can acquire by the end of transactions ( tomorrow at noon ) Dubois added . We still have a choice of bank draft .”
