VICTORIAVILLE, Que. - The QMJHL's Victoriaville Tigres fired head coach Martin Bernard on Saturday.
The Tigres dropped to 22-27-2-2 following Friday's 7-3 loss to the P.E.I. Rocket. Victoriaville has lost three straight and six of its last seven to fall into eighth place in the Telus Division standings.
