Arnaud Gascon-Nadon is headed down the river -- the standout defensive end has decided to ply his craft with Laval next season, note our friends at Allez Les Bleus.
Gascon-Nadon, as previously noted (July 13), is a huge get for Laval. The Montrealer had a stellar freshman season in 2008 with the Rice Owls in Conference USA, but reportedly said life in Houston, Texas was not for him. You might say he had good timing for leaving: Rice is 1-9 this season after going a school-best 10-3 in '08.
Montréal has D-linemen Mathieu Brossard and Martin Gagné moving on, so this hurts.
