BOUCHERVILLE, Wednesday, January 3, 2007 - The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League today announced the winners of the offensive, defensive and rookie of the month awards for December. The players were chosen by a League mandated committee.

Unsurprisingly, the offensive player of the month is Thomas Beauregard of the Acadie-Bathurst Titan. Beauregard, who currently sits atop the QMJHL scoring standings with 83 points, has impressed more than a few observers with his outstanding play since the beginning of the season. During the past month, the Titan forward collected fourteen goals, including two game-winners, and eleven assists in fourteen games. He also contributed two shorthanded goals and his plus/minus differential was a healthy +11.

François Bouchard (7-15-22) of the Drakkar, David Desharnais (10-9-19) of the Saguenéens and Toby Lafrance (10-7-17) of the Tigres were also considered.

The defensive player of the month award winner is Chicoutimi Saguenéens goaltender Bobby Nadeau. The third-year backstop has played a big part in the Saguenéens' rise in the TELUS division standings, where they currently sit in seventh place. Nadeau has won nine of his last ten starts while posting a 2.36 goals-against-average and .916 save percentage. The Chicoutimi backstop has played well over nineteen hundred minutes in thirty-five games this year - first among QMJHL goaltenders.

Andrew Andricopoulos (5-9-14; +9) of the Remparts, Marc-André Gragnani (6-8-14; +7) of the Rocket and Andrew MacDonald (1-7-8; +10) of the Wildcats were also under consideration.

Among rookies, forward David Perron of the MAINEiacs earns the honour for a second consecutive month. In eleven games, Perron registered five goals and seven assists while posting a +5 (plus/minus) differential. He's also been active physically, punishing opponents with a total of seventeen body-checks. His stellar play has enabled the MAINEiacs to stay on top of the Eastern division standings with 59 points.

Nicola Riopel (4-3; 209 MIN; 2.29 GAA; .912 SAV %) of the Wildcats, T.J. Brennan (2-4-6; +4) of the Fog Devils and Maxime Provencher (1-3-4; +7) of the Saguenéens were also considered.
