Stars' prospect Desrosiers sets QMJHL shutout streak with Oceanic

BOUCHERVILLE, Que. - Goaltender Philippe Desrosiers of the Rimouski Oceanic has broken a shutout record that was only three months old in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Desrosiers' 31-save performance in a 5-0 victory over the Victoriaville Tigres Monday extended his run without allowing a goal to 213 minutes 15 seconds.

That topped the previous mark of 212:10 set in November by Francois Brassard of the Quebec Remparts. Brassard had bettered the run of 207:04 posted in 1997-98 by Mathieu Chouinard of the Shawinigan Cataractes.

The 18-year-old Desrosiers, picked 54th overall by the Dallas Stars in the 2013 NHL draft, can extend his string if he plays Wednesday against the Sherbrooke Phoenix.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
