Flames prospect Jakob Pelletier has been named captain of the Val-d'Or Foreurs.
The winger was acquired by Val-D'Or earlier this month, at the QMJHL Entry Draft, in a deal with the Moncton Wildcats.
Pelletier, the 26th overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft, spent three seasons in Moncton, scoring 94 goals and 232 points in 182 regular season games. In 17 playoff games with the Wildcats, he had four goals and eight points.
In 2019-20, he was named the 28th captain in Moncton's history, posted 32 goals and 82 points in 57 games, and won the Frank J. Selke Trophy, which is awarded annually to the QMJHL's most sportsmanlike player.
The Flames signed the Quebec, QC product to a three-year entry-level contract on Sept. 23, 2019.
