New base leader; Kidney’s 1st goal

Jonathan Fauchon was involved in four of his team’s five goals as the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada easily defeated Rimouski Océanic 5-2 on Sunday.

Fauchon scored his third and fourth goals, including the second from a penalty. He was also an accomplice in Zach Biggar’s first goal of the match and Alexis Gendron’s goal that made it 5-2. It was another Gendron goal that was the only one without Fauchon’s help.

Luka Verreault and Shawn Pearson scored for the hosts, who suffer their fourth loss in as many games this season. The team allowed 20 buses and was only able to score five in four games. For its part, the Navy raises its record to three victories against one defeat.

With his collection of four points, Fauchon is the leading scorer in the QMJHL with nine points in four games. The Quebecer was eligible for the last NHL draft, but his name was not mentioned by any of the 32 teams on the Bettman circuit. Last year, Fauchon scored 31 points in 64 games with the Navy.

Kidney’s first goal

Canadian prospect Riley Kidney capped a four-goal streak with his first of the season in a 5-3 win for the Acadie-Bathurst Titan over the Moncton Wildcats.

The Wildcats led 3-1 with three minutes remaining in the first half thanks to goals from Alexis Daniel, Preston Lounsbury and Miles Mueller. Joseph Henneberry is the one who scored the second and third goals for the locals.

The Titan’s response began with two goals from Noah Ryan. The first came with two minutes and 49 seconds remaining in the first half. The second came at 5:49 of the second period, about 30 seconds before Harry Clements. Kidney wasted no time either, adding to the mark 57 seconds later.

Gatineau inflicts first setback on Quebec

Emerik Despatie saved 22 shots as Gatineau Olympiques defeated Quebec Remparts 3-1 on Sunday afternoon.

Despatie had the help of his defense, especially in the third half, and Olympiques recorded his first victory this season, in his fourth match.

Walls 1 – Olympics 3

Fresh off the Las Vegas Golden Knights camp, Zachary Dean has racked up a goal and an assist for the Gatineau team. He scored the final winning goal in the 17th second of the second period.

A fifth-round pick from Olympiques in 2021, Cristiano Spadafora scored the first goal of his career in the QMJHL. Isaac Belliveau completed the scoring to an empty goal.

Nathan Gaucher capitalized on a power play to deprive Despatie of a shutout. The Remparts forward hit for the second time in as many games since he returned from Anaheim Ducks camp.

William Rousseau conceded twice on 25 shots against Remparts’ goal, who suffered their first loss this season.

Olympiques opened the scoring after just two minutes of play. Spadafora grabbed a loose puck near the net and found space to Rousseau’s left.

The home team doubled their lead when Dean completed a fine pass from Robert Orr near the net. Joey Vetrano was behind the goal thanks to the turnover he caused.

Gaucher closed the gap before the end of the second when his slap shot eluded Despatie, but Belliveau sealed the game with 61 seconds remaining.

The Voltigeurs have fun in Chicoutimi

The Drummondville Voltigeurs exploded with five second period goals en route to a 6-2 victory over the Chicoutimi Saguenéens.

Maxim Massé was the first to find the back of the net in the Saguenéens game. Back from the locker room, Drummondville got going. Simon-Pier Brunet, Simon Hughes, Luke Woodworth, Mikael Diotte and Jérémy Lapointe chained five goals in 12 minutes of play to return to the locker room with a priority of four goals.

Voltigeurs 6 – Saguenéens 2

Tristan Roy completed his six-goal run with a penalty shot midway through the third period. Fabrice Fortin offered some consolation to the home fans with an unassisted goal at 12:56 of the third.

D’Aigle meets expectations in his 1Ahem play

The second overall pick in the latest QMJHL draft, goalie Gabriel D’Aigle, responded brilliantly in a 4-1 victory for Victoriaville Tigres over Baie-Comeau Drakkar.

D’Aigle made 18 saves to earn the first star in his first game in the QMJHL. His vis-à-vis, Olivier Adam, repelled 20 shots.

D’Aigle surrendered at the first half in Felix Gagnon’s first of the season. It is the only time that Drakkar has managed to beat the young Cerberus. Tommy Cormier tied the game just over two minutes after Gagnon’s goal.

In the second half, Justin Larose gave Victoriaville the lead. Justin Gendron and Maxime Pellerin made it 4-1 with two buses in the third period.
