REGULAR SEASON SUMMARY
The Rimouski Océanic finished third in the QMJHL as champions of the East Division. Their 42-17-6-3 record earned them 93 points, an impressive 34-point turnaround after the team finished in 16th place last season. The Océanic scored 231 goals during the regular season, good for ninth in the circuit. Defensively they led the pack, allowing just 174 tallies all year long. They scored on the powerplay with an efficiency rating of 18.8%, placing them 12th, but when it came to penalty killing, they again led the league with an 85.8% success rate. The Oceanic’s longest winning streak lasted five games, from November 24th-December 2nd. Meanwhile, their longest losing slide of the year was a mere three games, taking place from November 18th-22nd. The offensive leader of the Océanic was not only one of the most electrifying players of the league, but also one of its youngest. After finding the back of the net 42 times and finishing with 80 points, last year’s first overall selection in the QMJHL Entry Draft, Alexis Lafenière, made waves by becoming the first rookie to net 40 goals since former Rimouski superstar Sidney Crosby. Dmitry Zavgorodniy also chipped in with 26 goals while Mathieu Nadeau, acquired from the Val d’Or Foreurs, recorded 43 points in 32 games after being acquired by the Oceanic. Samuel Dove-McFalls, acquired in the off-season from Saint John, recorded 73 points while rookie netminder Colten Ellis led the league with 6 shutouts to go with his 33-8-5 record and 2.35 GAA. The acquisitions of Dove-McFalls and Nadeau were complimented by a trade with Halifax that sent defenseman Jordan Lepage to Rimouski. Additionally, right winger Anthony Gagnon recorded 17 points in 28 games after being acquired from the Gatineau Olympiques.
