QMJHL Roundup: Anthony Mantha's hat trick lifts Foreurs over Huskies 6-2

Anthony Mantha continued to be the focal point of the Val-d'Or Foreurs offence on Thursday.

Mantha had a hat trick and an assist as Val-d'Or handled the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies 6-2 in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

The left-winger leads the Foreurs with 37 goals and 30 assists, fifth best in the QMJHL.

Captain Cedrick Henley had a goal and two assists for Val-d'Or (24-20-3), while Randy Gazzola and Loik Poudrier also scored. Philippe Trudeau made 27 saves for the win.

Nikita Kucherov and Sven Andrighetto replied for Rouyn-Noranda (28-17-1). Alexandre Belanger started in net for the Huskies, and stopped 20 of 24 shots in 25:42 of work. Philippe Gingras turned aside 14 of 16 shots in relief.

It was a chippy game, with the teams combining for 60 minutes of penalties. The Foreurs had 33 minutes, while Rouyn-Noranda had 27.

Val-d'Or did not score on its two power plays. The Huskies went 1 for 5 with the man advantage.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Quebec 4 Cape Breton 1.

Remparts 4 Screaming Eagles 1

At Sydney, N.S., Axel Rioux scored and added an assist as Quebec (27-16-3) downed Cape Breton (10-30-8).

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
