After taking a look at some of the interesting stats around the Canadian Hockey League last week, we decided to delve further into the stats and go team-by-team across the country.
Quebec Major Junior Hockey League
Acadie-Bathurst Titan – Acquired from Drummondville, over-age forward Remy Anglehart had 20 goals in 47 games with the Titan. The most goals he had scored in a season prior to his final year was 18. He finished the 2019-20 season with 29 total between Acadie-Bathurst and Drummondville.
Baie-Comeau Drakkar – Pittsburgh Penguins prospect Nathan Legare has been deadly on the power play over the past two seasons. With 14 on the power play this season, Legare has 28 in the past two seasons.
Blainville-Boisbriand Armada – Over-age forward Antoine Demers, who split the season between Chicoutimi and Blainville, finished the season with eight goals. Of those, four of them were game winners.
Cape Breton Eagles – Acquired via trade, Tyler Hinam and Shawn Element stepped in and provided some offensive depth to the Eagles. The pair combined for 22 goals and 48 points in 50 games with the Eagles.
Charlottetown Islanders – Draft eligible defenceman Lukas Cormier finished the season with 36 points, but was an even more important piece of the Islanders power play with a goal and 18 assists on the man advantage.
Chicoutimi Sagueneens – A team with nine players who had 40 points or more this season on the roster, the Sagueneens got key offensive contributions from the likes of Montreal Canadiens prospect Samuel Houde, who finished the season with a career-high 52 points, and Christophe Farmer, who scored 15 goals and 51 points after putting up 13 points in 41 games last season.
Drummondville Voltigeurs – Draft eligible forward William Dufour took advantage of a trade to Drummondville. After he was acquired from Chicoutimi, Dufour proceeded to elevate his offensive game in an added role, scoring 18 goals and 33 points in 28 games in Drummondville.
Gatineau Olympiques – Similarly to Dufour in Drummondville, Evan MacKinnon’s offensive game took a step after he was acquired by Gatineau from Acadie-Bathurst. After posting 13 points in 35 games with the Titan, MacKinnon proceeded to score six times and finished with 20 points in 19 games in Gatineau.
Halifax Mooseheads – A former 13th round pick of the Mooseheads, Zack Jones took advantage of an opportunity and proceeded to score 15 goals in his first QMJHL season. It was second among Halifax rookies behind import Senna Peeters, who had 23.
Moncton Wildcats – Minnesota Wild prospect Alexander Khovanov and Calgary Flames prospect Jeremy McKenna gave Moncton a dangerous duo on the power play. The two combined for 16 goals and 32 assists on the man advantage this season. Add in 22 points on the power play from Jakob Pelletier (Calgary Flames) and that’s among the most dangerous trios in the league.
Quebec Remparts – Undrafted and signed by the Remparts as a free agent in 2016, over-age defenceman Darien Kielb set career-highs offensively in head of his four seasons in the league. After spending two seasons in Gatineau following his rookie season in Quebec, Kield returned to the Remparts for his final season and picked up 45 points in 64 games.
Rimouski Oceanic – Similarly to Moncton, Rimouski’s power play had a handful of weapons. Between the 40 points from 2020 draft eligible Alexis Lafreniere and 32 more from Cedric Pare (Boston Bruins), defenceman Isaac Belliveau chipped in nicely with 27 points on the man advantage as well.
Rouyn-Noranda Huskies – In the 2019-20 season, 39 players played in at least one game with the Huskies and all but seven had at least one point.
Saint John Sea Dogs – Draft eligible defenceman William Villeneuve led the Sea Dogs in scoring with 58 points, including 17 points on the power play. Of those 17, all were assists.
Shawinigan Cataractes – After posting just four wins in his rookie season in 41 games, draft eligible goaltender Antoine Coulombe turned things around with 23 wins in 44 games this season.
Sherbrooke Phoenix – Samuel Hlavaj’s first season in the league was one to remember. He finished in the top five in goals-against average (first), wins (second) and save percentage (third). After a pair of regulation losses and a pair of overtime losses between September and November, Hlavaj lost just one game the rest of the season.
Val-d’Or Foreurs – Defenceman David Noel (St. Louis Blues) had six goals and 19 points on the power play, which accounted for over half of his 33 points this season.
Victoriaville Tigres – After putting up good numbers with the Tigres one year ago in his first season in the league, Mikhail Abramov (Toronto Maple Leafs) turned that experience into a career-year with 35 goals and 71 points.
