It didn't take goaltender Jessy Lecours long to reach his first Quebec Major Junior Hockey League milestone.

Lecours stopped all 21 shots he faced in his second career QMJHL start as the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies blanked the Rimouski Oceanic 4-0 on Friday night.

Lecours, selected by Rouyn-Noranda in the eighth round in 2008, made the most of his first start of the season. He started one game last season, but was pulled in the second period after allowing four goals on 15 shots. Friday's shutout marked his first career QMJHL win.

Gabriel Levesque scored two power-play goals in the third period to put the game away, while Jerome Gauthier-Leduc had a goal and an assist for the Huskies (3-3-0).

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Drummondville 4, Quebec 1; Moncton 4, Cape Breton 1; Shawinigan 3, Acadie-Bathurst 1; Baie-Comeau 5, Val-d'Or 3; Victoriaville 5, Saint John 2; and Montreal 4, Lewiston 3.
