Yannick Veilleux hit the target twice in the second period, each time with the help of Jordan Weal, to help the Laval Rocket win 5-1 against the Belleville Senators on Saturday afternoon at the Center Bell.
The Rocket continues its excellent start to the season, after defeating the Senators by the same score on opening night on Friday.
“Veilleux is a force in the American League, thanks to his character and his attitude,” notably praised head coach Joël Bouchard after Saturday’s game. This trio has been good with Jordan, center, and [Rafael] Harvey-Pinard who was able to follow. ”
Harvey-Pinard also scored his first career goal in the American League.
“It was a great moment,” said the 22-year-old. I was happy with the reaction of the other players. I have the puck with me and I will keep it for a long time. It’s an important moment for me in my career. ”
Lukas Vejdemo, who also scored the day before, collected his second goal of the campaign during this game while Laurent Dauphin opened the scoring in the first period. After two games with the Rocket, Weal got three assists. The Canadiens may have to think about him in the event of a recall later this season.
A guard with the number 3
In addition to the fact that he now displays the number 3 on the back of his jersey, goaltender Michael McNiven signaled in another way on his first start, repelling 25 of the 26 pucks aimed at him. Only striker Parker Kelly managed to outsmart him at the end of the first period.
“My girl [Chloe Jamie], who will soon be five months old, was born on October 3, ”explained McNiven briefly, at the end of the match, when asked about his daring choice of number.
In front of the Senators’ net, Quebecker Kevin Mandolese, only 20, had the pleasure of playing at the Bell Center for his first career game in the American League. Despite the loss, the former Cape Breton Screaming Eagles, in the QMJHL, completed the game with 36 saves.
The Rocket and the Senators will face off again on Tuesday evening at the Bell Center.
I hope you are in health and well.
