Recently traded players continue to make an impact in Quebec junior hockey.
Toni Ritter scored in his second game with Drummondville as the Voltigeurs doubled the Chicoutimi Sagueneens 4-2 in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action Saturday night.
Ritter was traded to Drummondville on Dec. 30. The Voltigeurs are Ritter's third team this season after starting the year with the Montreal Junior until Oct. 16 when he was moved to the Shawinigan Cataractes where he played for 20 games.
Moncton's Nicolas Deschamps also made waves when he scored twice in his debut with the Moncton Wildcats on Dec. 27 after being dealt from the Sagueneens on Dec. 23.
Gabriel Bourque is also expected to make an impact when he begins playing with Moncton. The 19-year-old was traded to the Wildcats from the Baie-Comeau Drakkar on Dec. 19, but couldn't report to Moncton because he had been named to Canada's junior team three days prior.
Bourque will join his new team when the world junior championship is done.
