The regular season is now over in Québec. Unfortunately, COVID cases arose in several teams so the playoffs were forced to be delayed.

Meanwhile, the Maritimes are still playing and here some names worth keeping an eye on: Riley Kidney, Jacob Melanson and Cole Huckins (Acadie-Bathurst) – Connor Trenholm (Cape-Breton) – Oscar Plandowski & William Trudeau (Charlottetown) – Zachary L’Heureux, Robert Orr & Cameron Whynot (Halifax) – Peter Reynolds & Cameron MacDonald (Saint-John).

Weak game for Nadeau. His usual fierce energy was absent and skating seemed like a heavy burden. He still made some strong hits on the forecheck, again embraced his role as a screen and helped a lot when it came to defense.

On the other hand, a good game for Xavier Bourgault and a great one for Lorenzo Canonica. Bourgault showed character and demonstrated that he can play with intensity. Again, always ready and well placed to fire as F3.

Canonica was pretty impressive that night; high compete-level on all his shifts. Always moving his feet, high awareness defensively and just a constant effort to get the puck back. He’s not overly fast nor excellent offensively, but this kind of game should help raise his draft-stock.
