Jerome Verrier scores as Voltigeurs edge Foreurs 3-2 in QMJHL

VAL-D'OR, Que. - Jerome Verrier's power-play goal gave the Drummondville Voltigeurs the insurance they needed in a 3-2 win over the Val-d'Or Foreurs in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League play Thursday.

Olivier Archambault and Marc-Olivier Brouillard also scored for Drummondville (6-5-0).

Brouillard scored on a penalty shot in the first period after Val-d'Or's Artem Sergeev was sent off for hooking.

Verrier meanwhile scored at 7:22 in the second to put the Voltigeurs up for good.

Anton Zlobin and Anthony Mantha each scored for the Foreurs (4-7-0).

Louis-Philip Guindon made 26 saves in net for Drummondville, while at the other end of the ice Francois Tremblay stopped 24 shots.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
