Knew I would see his name here. I'm from Sherbrooke and I know his story quite well.
What people probably dont know is that he played Midget B because no team (AA-BB-CC) wanted him because he had a lot of problem off and on the ice with everybody (players and coaches). Thats why he was scratched down to midget B even if he was so talented. Heck, his coach that year was his dad, no one wanted to coach him. His attitude was that bad.
He played Bantam AA the year before so his talent was never in doubt but his attitude almost cost him a nhl career.
