QMJHL fans and teams alike are now into week two of a pause in the season due to COVID-19. And just like many other people around the league, they are getting pretty creative with the free time they’ve suddenly found.
The Drummondville Voltigeurs are staying at home. Based on their skills with sticks and rolls of toilet paper, no matter when teams hit the ice again, they’ll be ready.
Other players, like Sherbrooke Phoenix forward Benjamin Tardif, have taken up the #BringSallyUp Challenge that’s gone viral on social media. Whether it’s by doing push-ups, squats or any other physical activity, people are invited to work out to Moby’s song called “Flowers”.
Meanwhile, the Saint John Sea Dogs are overcoming the cancellation of their annual awards ceremonies by naming their team winners via social media.
That’s not the only thing the Sea Dogs players have won in recent days. They’ve also managed to defeat Acadie-Bathurst 8-2 in a simulated game via NHL 20 that was streamed live by the Titan. No ice? No problem!
Then there’s the fans that are patiently (or impatiently!) waiting for hockey to come back, like these two diehard Armada rooters!
As for the Maritime fans looking for some “Q” action on their TV’s, Eastlink has you covered. Friday night sees the long-time league media partner airing the still-legendary Game 7 of the 2003 Conference Semi-Final between the Titan and the Halifax Mooseheads.
Then there’s the Islanders… what can you say about the Islanders? Talk about making the best of a tough situation! Whether it’s streaming classic games on Twitch, challenging rivals to games of NHL 20, or just plain being nice to every other team in the league, the Isles are a must-follow.
