Ultramar Player of the Week: Samuel L’Italien (May 14, 2018)

David Chan

Boucherville, QC – The Ultramar Player of the Week is Samuel L’Italien (Titan | Acadie-Bathurst) who picked up four points in four games over the past week.

L’Italien kicked off the week by scoring the insurance goal in game #3 of the Rogers President Cup Final, a 5-2 win over the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada.

After failing to register a point in a game four loss, L’Italien came back strong by recording a goal and adding an assists in a 5-3 victory in game five.

Then, in the deciding game, L’Italien scored what would be the game-winner in the Titan’s 2-1 victory. The win helped the Titan capture their second President Cup title in Bathurst in their 20-year history.

The other players considered for the Ultramar Player of the Week were two of L’Italien’s teammates: forward Jeffrey Truchon-Viel, who was named the playoffs most valuable player, as well as defenseman Olivier Galipeau.

Truchon-Viel had three goals and one assist while Galipeau recorded five points in four games.
