Ultramar Player of the Week | Rémi Poirier (January 13, 2020)

 

The latest Ultramar Player of the Week is Gatineau Olympiques goaltender Rémi Poirier. In a pair of home games, the 18-year-old from Granby, Quebec was literally unbeatable, posting back-to-back shutouts as his club continues to roll in 2020.

On Saturday night, Poirier kicked aside 33 shots, including 19 in the third period alone, as Gatineau posted a 4-0 triumph over the Victoriaville Tigres. The second-year netminder was named the game’s first star in posting his second shutout of the season.

It would take Poirier less than 24 hours to earn his next whitewash. Facing the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada on Sunday afternoon, he steered aside all 37 shots directed his way in yet another 4-0 Olympiques victory. Once again named the contest’s first star, Poirier has now run his shutout streak to almost 134 minutes while the ‘Piques have won seven of their last ten games.

Poirier currently sports an 11-14 record on the season with a GAA of 3.34 and a .902% save percentage. His three shutouts place him in a four-way tie for first in the league in that department. Poirier was a fifth-round selection of the Olympiques at the 2017 QMJHL Draft.
