REGULAR SEASON SUMMARY
The Chicoutimi Saguenéens finished the season in 15th place with 61 total points and a record of 28-35-4-1. Despite compiling their lowest point total in five seasons, they nonetheless clinched a postseason berth for an 18th consecutive season. The team scored exactly 200 goals, placing them 15th overall in the “Q”. Defensively, the Saguenéens’ 233 goals against ranked them 11th. Their powerplay finished 14th in the circuit, clicking at a rate of 17.5%, while the penalty kill landed in 16th spot at 76.9%. Despite their position in the standings, Chicoutimi was a relatively consistent team. Though they never won more than five games in a row, a streak that ran from January 28th to February 8th, neither did they lose more than four in a row at any time during the season. That four-game slide occurred from September 22nd to 30th. Over one quarter of the Saguenéens’ offense was provided by the Klima twins, Kevin and Kelly, who registered 39 and 18 goals, respectively. Kevin also finished fourth overall in the QMJHL scoring race with 85 points. Rookie Russian winger Vladislav Kotkov tallied 21 times while another young talent, winger Samuel Houde, scored 16. Another rookie, goaltender Alexis Shank, finished among the league leaders with three shutouts. Chicoutimi was involved in two of the league’s biggest trades, dealing center German Rubtsov and defenseman Olivier Galipeau to the Acadie-Bathurst Titan. Acquisitions by the Saguenéens included Gabriel Villeneuve from the Quebec Remparts and winger Samuel Meisenheimer from the Charlottetown Islanders.
