QMJHL Player of the Week | Xavier Simoneau (May 2, 2022)

 

The final Player of the Week for the QMJHL regular season is Charlottetown Islanders center Xavier Simoneau. In three games, the 20-year-old from Saint-Andre-Avellin, Quebec scored twice and added eight assists as the Maritime Division Champion Islanders went undefeated on the week.

On Tuesday night in Sydney, Simoneau picked up a pair of assists, including a helper on the eventual game-winning tally, before firing his 23rd of the season into an empty net in the Islanders’ 5-3 triumph over the Cape Breton Eagles. It was also the fifth-year veterans’ 250th regular season game in the Q.

On Friday night in Moncton, Simoneau would provide more dramatics, scoring early in the third period to tie the game at two before scoring not once, but twice during what would prove to be a record-breaking 19-round shootout as the Isles downed the Wildcats 3-2. As a result, Simoneau, who would be named the game’s first star, became the first player in QMJHL history to score twice in the same shootout.

On Sunday afternoon at home, Simoneau chose his final QMJHL regular season game to make history yet again, recording six assists, a new Islanders single-game record, in a 10-2 victory over the Acadie-Bathurst Titan. Simoneau would be named the third star of the contest while also setting a new personal best for points in a game.

Simoneau completes his season with 86 points in only 48 games. A sixth-round selection of the Montreal Canadiens at the 2021 NHL Entry Draft, Simoneau’s final regular season career totals in the QMJHL include an impressive 314 points in 252 games.
