QMJHL Roundup: Malouin dominant in Voltigeurs 5-2 win over Armada

DRUMMONDVILLE, Que. - Jeremie Malouin was dominant on Saturday.

Malouin had a natural hat trick in the third period in a four-goal performance as the Drummondville Voltigeurs sank the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 5-2 in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

The 20-year-old left-winger scored the Voltigeurs (22-14-1) first goal of the game late in the second period. He then scored at the 12:25 mark of the third, again at the 14:44 mark and then put the puck into an empty net with just over a minute left to play.

Malouin's outburst takes his goal output up to 21 this season.

Jerome Verrier also scored for Drummondville, while Louis-Philip Guindon made 23 saves for the win.

Pier-Olivier GrandMaison and Tommy Giroux replied for the Armada (22-10-4). Alexandre Veronneau stopped 26 of 30 shots for Blainville-Boisbriand.

The Voltigeurs scored once on six power-play chances and the Armada went 0 for 5 with the man advantage.

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
