Rouyn-Noranda Huskies center Jean-Sebastien Dea has burst to the top of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League scoring race after another outstanding week.
The 6-foot, 155-pound forward had six goals and two assists in three games last week. He had his second hat trick of the season in a 9-2 win at the Sherbrooke Phoenix on Wednesday, with two of the goals coming shorthanded, and he also added an assist. He had two more goals and an assist Friday in a 4-2 win at the Drummondville Voltigeurs, and he had a goal in the Huskies' 5-4 shootout win at the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada on Saturday.
His effort also earned him the Telus First Star of the Week.
Dea leads the QMJHL in goals (nine), power-play goals (four), shorthanded goals (two) and points (13).
Another 2013 draft prospect, Saint John Sea Dogs goaltender Sebastian Auger, was named the Third Star of the Week, stopping 97 of 101 shots in three games. He stopped 21 shots in a 4-2 win against the Moncton Wildcats on Wednesday, made 34 saves in a 3-1 win against the Gatineau Olympiques on Friday, and stopped 42 of 43 shots in a 5-1 win at Moncton on Sunday.
On the season, Auger is 4-1 in five games, and second in the league with a .944 save percentage and fourth with a 1.78 goals-against average.
The QMJHL isn't the only place 2013 draft hopefuls have been turning heads.
