THREE-RIVERS — The guardian Antoine Lyon and defender Vincent Sevigny took home top honors on Sunday in Laval, at the Gala of the champions hockey League midget AAA.
Lyon, 16 years old, placed a hand on the trophy Martin Brodeur, handed in to the porter who has posted the best average of goals allowed in the circuit (1,97). However, it is Charles-Antoine Lavallée, of the Gauls, Saint-Hyacinthe, who earned the trophy the Ken-Dryden, awarded to the guardian par excellence.
At its first – and likely only – year in the midget AAA, Lyon has a very well published, recording 12 wins in 20 outings. He had to make a detour by the midget Espoir last season, a transition that will no doubt have been beneficial to him. “It’s part of the development, said his coach, Frédéric Lavoie, glad to see He rewarded thus. The average goal, this is a statistical team and it reflects our campaign in general.”
Vincent Sevigny has been chosen on the first all-star team of the circuit Baillairgé. It complements the first pair with William Villeneuve of the Men of Magog. Sevigny was also nominated for the title of defender of the year, that he has stolen Villeneuve, one of his opponents in the final of the Coupe Jimmy Ferrari.
“It was not supposed to miss him much, advance Lavoie. That said, it is fully deserved for him to be on the first all-star team. Vincent has made us a better team each time he jumped on the ice. It will have a great career in the junior.”
Behind the bench, the brio of Lavoie was pointed out as coach of the second all-star team. Only Felix Potvin, chosen driver of the year, finished in front of him. Lavoie was trying to win the bet for the second time in his career after 2014-15.
Note that the faculty advisor Carl Dufresne, of the Academy the Booms, has inherited the trophy Michel-Daoust, submitted to the advisor of the year. “It’s been a long time that Carl is working with us and he did a great job,” acknowledged Lavoie, whose team established a new record during the series by winning ten consecutive games.
