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.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
