Tigres dump Voltigeurs

Alexandre Imbeault scored a pair of goals and the Victoriaville Tigres used a strong power-play performance to beat the Drummondville Voltigeurs 5-2 in QMJHL action Tuesday.

Both of Imbeault's goals came with the man advantage as the Tigres (5-2-0-0) finished with four power-play goals in 13 chances en route to their fourth straight win. Maxim Noreau added a goal and an assist for Victoriaville, while Keven Guerette-Charland and Jan Kolarik had singles.

Etienne Bellavance-Martin and Francis Charette countered for the Voltigeurs (4-4-0-0), who have dropped two straight. Drummondville went just 2-for-10 with the man advantage but outshot the Tigres 32-22.

Jean-Christophe Blanchard was the difference for Victoriaville, making 30 saves. Pierre-Alexandre Marion stopped 17 shots for the Voltigeurs.

Eagles Ouellet hopes to stay injury-free

After two injury-shortened seasons with the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles, Dean Ouellet is hoping a rigorous summer training regiment will help his chances of staying healthy this season.

The 19-year-old left-winger has missed 15 games due to a variety of injuries in each of his two seasons with the Eagles. Last season a separated shoulder, a concussion and a hip flexor limited him to 55 games, the same number he played as a rookie two years ago.

“I worked a lot during the summer to try to get more flexible and get bigger to try to avoid any injuries this year,” said Ouellet, who added 10 pounds to his 5’11” frame to boost his weight to 185 pounds.

Locke feels secure with his move to left wing

To put a hockey spin on an old adage, you can take the boy out of centre, but you can’t take the centre out of the boy.

For P.E.I. Rocket forward Chad Locke it means moving to left wing hasn’t changed his viewpoint, except he’s now seeking centre Guillaume Doucet, who came over from Rouyn-Noranda in the off-season, and a healthy David Laliberte at right wing.

“I think the left wing is opening more space for me, Locke said after Tuesday’s practice at the Civic Centre. “It’s creating more open ice (for) getting the puck to them.

The Rocket (4-2) will host the Halifax Mooseheads (3-4) in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action tonight at the Civic Centre. Game time is 7 p.m.
