The Quebec Remparts won Saturday at the Palais des Sports Léopold-Drolet largely at the expense of the Sherbrooke Phoenix by a score of 6-2.
With the score 2-0 at the start of the third period, attacker Kassim Gaudet delivered an excellent feint against Phoenix defender Étienne Tremblay-Mathieu before beating goalkeeper Samuel St-Hilaire between the pads.

The latter also played a more than complicated game and allowed five goals on 32 shots. His counterpart at the other end of the ice, Montreal Canadiens junior Quentin Miller, failed to score a shutout as he conceded two goals at the very end of the game. The 18-year-old made 25 saves on 27 shots.
For Éric Veilleux’s men, the party started quickly. Thanks to Daniel Agostino, they got on the scoreboard after 2 minutes and 57 seconds. The members of the Quebec club also managed to light up the red light twice on the power play, with Zachary Marquis-Laflamme and Xavier Lebel managing to deceive the vigilance of St-Hilaire.
Pier-Étienne Cloutier and Nathan Plamondon-Michaud were the Remparts’ other two scorers. Andrew Belchamber and Lewis Gendron replied for Sherbrooke.
Thanks to this win, Quebec has a record of 9-13-0, good for eighth place in the Eastern Association.
The Remparts host the Drummondville Voltigeurs on Tuesday at the Videotron Center.
