The Montreal Canadiens hopefuls ended Sunday’s rookie tournament in Buffalo with a convincing 7-2 win over the youngsters of the Ottawa Senators.
Check out the synopsis of the game in the video above.
Xavier Simoneau was one of the moderators of this two-network meeting. Quebec’s Miguel Tourigny also scored once.
It was Emil Heineman who opened the brand. The 20-year-old Swede, who replaced Tyler Toffoli last February, did well in that meeting, also scoring at least one assist.
Brett Stapley, John Parker-Jones and Riley Kidney also found the back of the net.
The Bleu Blanc Rouge representatives had previously suffered 4-3 losses to the New Jersey Devils and the Buffalo Sabers.
Quebec’s Zachary Massicotte received an invite to the Senators’ rookie camp. However, the 6’4″ defender got the bad idea of fighting Arber Xhekaj. Stunned by a solid right hand, he left the match immediately. Senators said he sustained an upper-body injury.
Massicotte had scored before that fight. His teammate Angus Crookshank also threaded the needle in the defeat.
Looking for an invitation to the big Sens camp, Massicotte racked up six goals and 18 points in 57 games with the Cataractes of Shawinigan last season.
