“He’s someone who has had great success everywhere he went and I’m looking forward to having him bring his talent to the university level.”

In five QMJHL seasons, the St-Hyacinthe, Que., native posted a 123-80 (won-lost) record in 209 games with a 2.80 goals against average and a 0.904 save percentage.
