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

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
