Ultramar Player of the Week | Nathan Légaré (February 24, 2020)

 

The latest Ultramar Player of the Week is Baie-Comeau Drakkar winger Nathan Légaré. In a pair of home games, the 19-year-old from Montreal, Quebec scored six goals and added three assists, leading the Drakkar to consecutive victories.

On Saturday night, Légaré registered a hat trick, including the game-winner, and added a helper while the Drakkar rallied from three separate one-goal deficits to defeat the Val-d’Or Foreurs 7-3, snapping a five-game losing streak. The third-year veteran, who was also a +4 on the night, earned the game’s first star.

It was a repeat performance on Sunday afternoon against those same Foreurs. This time, Légaré would provide the game-winner in the form of a shorthanded marker early in the third period. Once again, it would be part of a three-goal contest for the Drakkar captain, however he’d add two helpers to match his career high with a five-point outing. Baie-Comeau capped off its weekend with a 6-3 triumph over Val-d’Or, while Légaré would earn his second straight first star accolade.

Légaré’s offensive outburst this past weekend has propelled him to back-to-back 30 goal campaigns. The sixth overall selection at the 2017 QMJHL Draft leads the Drakkar in scoring with 66 points, including 33 goals, in 53 games. Légaré was selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the third round of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.
