Ex-Sea Dogs goalie Turcotte joins Concordia
The Concordia Stingers are expected to add former QMJHL goalie, Marc-Antoine Turcotte, of the Saint John Sea Dogs and Blainville-Boisbriand Armada in January of 2017 for the second semester of OUA hockey.
Turcotte will join a crease packed with ex-QMJHL talent, as Philippe Cadorette is currently the team’s No. 1 goalie, and ex-Titan and Screaming Eagle Miguel Sullivan is the backup.
Turcotte was one of the best goalies during the 2012-13 QCHL season when he first received the call to the QMJHL in the playoffs with the Armada late that season as a backup. Turcotte began the 2013-14 season with Vaudreuil-Dorion, but was later called up by the Armada again for a quick one-game stint. In 2014-15, Turcotte cracked the Armada roster and spent a full season as the back-up for Samuel Montembeault. Last season Turcotte played 52 regular season games for the Saint John Sea Dogs as their starter, and played another 16 games into a deep playoff run which saw the Sea Dogs eliminated by Shawinigan in the third round of the playoffs.
With a collection of talented goalies in the crease, the Concordia Stingers have a number of options moving forward. Concordia joins the McGill Redmen as the only other OUA team with three former QMJHL goalies on their roster. Off to a 4-1 start, the Concordia Stingers have been one of the best OUA teams to this point in the season.
