In a pre-game ceremony held before their first playoff game against the Shawinigan Cataractes, three QMJHL trophies were awarded to the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies organization.
With their impressive record of 59-8-0-1 (most regular season wins in QMJHL history), the team finished first overall in the QMJHL standings, 17 points ahead of the Halifax Mooseheads and the Baie-Comeau Drakkar. The Huskies received the Jean-Rougeau Trophy from the Director of Hockey Operations of the QMJHL, Pierre Leduc. The trophy was accepted by team captain Rafaël Harvey-Pinard.
The regular season champions were also awarded the Robert-Lebel Trophy after the team recorded the best goals-against-average during the regular season. Rouyn-Noranda maintained a 2.00 goals-against-average (QMJHL record) after allowing only 138 markers in 68 games, 26 less than their closest pursuers, the Halifax Mooseheads. The trophy was presented by the Mayor of Rouyn-Noranda, Diane Dallaire.
Finally, the Kevin-Lowe Trophy was awarded to the season’s best defensive defenseman. Jacob Neveu received the trophy from Éric Dubé, a part-owner of the team who coached Jacob Neveu in minor hockey.
The QMJHL would like to congratulate the players, management, coaching and administrative staffs for their historic season.
