A new officiating record has been broken in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The former record of 904 games worked duringthe regular season held by Mr. Sylvain Cloutier was surpassed by linesman Serge Carpentier on November 7th, 2010 when the Montreal Juniors hosted the Baie-Comeau Drakkar.
Along with fellow officials Stéphane Tremblay, Frédéric Leblanc and Nicholas Savoie, Serge Carpentier stepped over this plateau and now holds the coveted record at 905 games.
Currently in his 20th QMJHL season, Mr. Carpentier worked his first regular season game in Hull during the 1991-1992 season. To this date, he has also logged 211 playoff games.
Mr. Carpentier shows a very eloquent series of achievements in the officiating field, namely:
• four Memorial Cup appearances (1997 – 2000 – 2003 – 2006);
• five national tournaments;
• three international competitions including the Junior World Championships in Boston in 1996.
