OFFICIAL: Voltigeurs acquire Ouimet from Olympiques


The Drummondville Voltigeurs added 18-year-old centreman Charles-Olivier Ouimet in a trade with the Gatineau Olympiques Friday morning.

In return, Gatineau received an eighth round pick in 2017, originally belonging to the Acadie-Bathurst Titan.

A native of Blainville, Que., Ouimet was originally drafted by the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in the third round of the 2014 QMJHL draft, 42nd overall. Traded to Gatineau this summer for a fifth-round pick, Ouimet has registered four points in 27 games this season.

The trade was made official by the QMJHL on Jan. 6, 2017.
