Over on HF Boards, someone named “Dutch”, who appears to be affiliated with CFOU 89.1 FM Sports, says that UQTR is looking to add six players at Christmas.
- F Félix Petit (Quebec & Baie-Comeau, QMJHL; Cincinnati, ECHL). 288 points in the Q.
- F Gabriel Balasecu (Rimouski, Sherbrooke & Lewiston, QMJHL; UQTR in 2004-05; St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, Trois-Rivieres & Pont Rouge, LNAH). 119 points & 538 PIM in the Q.
- F Jean-Philippe Roy-Vallieres (Baie-Comeau, Saint John & Chicoutimi, QMJHL; College St. Lawrence & Quebec; QJAHL; St. Georges, LNAH). Looks to be less of an impact player.
- D Maxime Fréchette (Drummondville & Acadie-Bathurst; QMJHL). 6'5" and selected by Columbus Blue Jackets in the fifth round (142nd overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
- D Alex Lamontagne (Acadie-Bathurst, Baie-Comeau, Cape Breton & Gatineau, QJMHL; Flin Flon, SJHL; Muskegon & Flint, IHL). Well travelled 6'4" d-man.
- D Pierre-Luc Lessard (Gatineau, PEI and Baie-Comeau, QMJHL; Bakersfield, ECHL). 176 points in the Q and 52 in his last year.
UQTR has a recent history of losing potential recruits to the LNAH, that "semi-pro" league better known outside of Quebec for their brawls on YouTube than good hockey, so it great to see coach Jacques Laporte getting some of those players back.
