Canadiens goaltending prospect Zachary Fucale has been traded from the QMJHL’s Halifax Mooseheads to the Quebec Remparts in exchange for two first-round draft picks (2016, 2018), a pair of second- and third-round picks in 2016 and 2018, respectively, in addition to netminder Eric Brassard.
The Habs’ 36th overall pick from 2013 will have the chance to win a second Memorial Cup this spring when the Remparts host the annual CHL tournament in the provincial capital. The 19-year-old Rosemere, QC native won the trophy previously in 2013 with the Mooseheads.
Fucale will represent Canada in goal at the IIHF World Junior Championship beginning next week in Montreal and Toronto, alongside Winnipeg Jets prospect Eric Comrie.
In four seasons with the Mooseheads, Fucale has registered 126 wins over 187 games played. He currently sits 17 wins shy of breaking Jacques Cloutier’s record for all-time regular season wins in the QMJHL.
