BOUCHERVILLE, Monday, January 9th, 2017 – Francis Leclerc, Mathieu Sévigny and Frédéric Aubé were named today, the three stars of the week for the period of January 2nd to the 8th, 2017.
The first star of the week is Blainville-Boisbriand Armada’s goaltender, Francis Leclerc. In two games, both won by shutout, with an average of 0.00, combined with a perfect 41 stops on 41 shots, earned him the first star of the week in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. A 6-0 win last Tuesday against the Val-d’Or Foreurs, with a 21 saves performance and against the Chicoutimi Saguenéens, in a 3-0 win where he blocked all 20 shots to earn the second star of the game. His streak of not allowing a goal is 138 minutes and 52 seconds, which he will try to extend in his next game in front of the Armada’s net. The franchise record is accessible, 153 minutes and 34 seconds, which was established by Étienne Marcoux, established during the season 2011-12. His goals-against average of 2.27 is the second best in the League this season, while his .917 save percentage in the best.
The second star of the week was awarded to Drummondville Voltigeurs’ forward, Mathieu Sévigny. In three games, he amassed eight points including four goals, and participated in as many chances to the other goals of his team, while maintaining a +5 rating. He was named first star of the game twice in a row. First, he set two personal records with a four-point game which included three goals against the Victoriaville Tigres in a 8-4 victory earlier this week and against the Gatineau Olympiques in a 5-0 win, where he recorded three points (1g-2a), last Saturday, in Guillaume Latendresse’s tribute. On Sunday, at the very last minute of the game, he obtained a helper on the equalizer scored by Pavel Koltygin which forced overtime.
Frédéric Aubé, defenceman for the Halifax Mooseheads, is the third star of the week. In four games, he collected seven points and concluded his week with a +10 rating. In his last game with Drummondville, he got two assists and a +4 rating, in an 8-3 win for the Voltigeurs. Immediately arriving in Halifax in a trade, in his first game in his new uniform, he amassed four points Friday to equal the record for most points by a defenceman in a game by a Mooseheads. He was named the first star of the game in this 6-2 win and, by the same token, crossed the 100-point mark in the QMJHL in his 227th game. He also scored the insurance goal in a 4-1 win against the Saint John Sea Dogs last Saturday.
