Gabriel Bourret, Jean-François Bérubé and Benjamin Casavant named TELUS three stars of the week

Press Release

Gabriel Bourret becomes the first defenseman of the season to capture first star honours. The young blue-liner led the Sea Dogs with six points - all assists - and also posted an excellent +5 rating in victories over two of the best teams in the QMJHL: The Acadie-Bathurst Titan and the Quebec Remparts. Furthermore, he was named the first star in both contests.

Jean-François Bérubé gets the nod as the second star following solid outings versus the Screaming Eagles, the Olympiques and the Voltigeurs. He pushed away 86 of 91 shots, maintaining a 1.68 goals-against-average and .945 save percentage while winning two out of three starts. His best game came on Sunday as he stopped 30 shots in a 5-1 victory over the Voltigeurs. He was named the game’s second star.

Benjamin Casavant is the third star after an amazing performance on Saturday versus the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in which he registered one goal and five helpers in a 7-3 win. Moreover, he finished the week with a +6 rating. The Cataractes have won eight of their last ten games and sit in third place in the TELUS West Division.
