QMJHL Roundup: A look at Saturday's games @NHLdotcom

Andre Bouvet-Morrissette is producing goals like never before.

The 20-year old right-winger scored once, extending his goal streak to eight games, and set up two more as his Drummondville Voltiguers defeated the visiting Baie-Comeau Drakkar 6-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

With only three games remaining in the regular season and a playoff position already clinched, Bouvet-Morrissette now has 11 goals and 16 points in his last eight outings.

Alex Emond and Marc-Olivier Brouillard each had a goal and an assist for the Voltiguers (27-30-9), who have won back-to-back games, while Olivier Archambault, Guillaume Gauthier and Olivier Caouette scored a goal apiece.

Nikolas Brouillard and Michael Santini chipped in with two assists each.

Raphael Bussieres scored the lone goal for the Drakkar (28-32-5), who have dropped five straight contests.

Alexandre Veronneau made 17 saves for his first win since being acquired from the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in December.

Phillippe Cadorette stopped 15 of 19 shots before getting pulled in the second period for Jimmy Appleby, who allowed two goals on 12 shots in relief.
