Canadiens prospect Simon Bourque has gotten a bit closer to his second crack at the Memorial Cup tournament after the Saint John Sea Dogs qualified for the President's Cup final in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
In Game 6 of their series against the Chicoutimi Sagueneens, the Sea Dogs overcame 2-0 and 5-3 deficits to come out on top by a score of 6-5, punching their ticket to the final.
Bourque collected an assist in the deciding game, upping his total to 11 points (3G, 8A) in 14 playoff games this year. He has also recorded a plus-15 differential this spring, good for third place in the QMJHL.
Bourque and the Sea Dogs will meet the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada in the final, with the series getting underway this Friday in Harbour Station, New Brunswick.
The 20-year-old defenseman will try to take home his second President's Cup, after winning in 2015 with the Rimouski Oceanic.
