It represented an absence of shape for AKD-Bathurst, who relied on Gatineau’s striker to make a breakthrough. But Sylvain Couturier is not worried.

We can’t take it in our mind that Hendrix is ​​going to come back or not. We want to do our business in Bathurst. If he comes back it’s a bonus and that would be cool, we’d be very happy.

If Hendrix Lapierre were to stay at Washington and never play at Bathurst again, the compensation would be returned to Titan by the Saguens.

ready for sequel

The caliber of the Maritimes division is high this season, with the St. John Sea Dogs and Charlottetown Islanders being Titan favorites.

But we should not neglect other structures, such as those in Moncton, Cape Breton and Halifax.

We will not win on our talent alone, the message was clear, warned Sylvain Couturier. You must have a work ethic.

Hockey scholars repeat it: at the end of the evening we recognize the best dancers. A good start to the season does not guarantee a championship.
