Starting my BAP, will sim some games, and sometimes play 3rd periods, and play playoffs games completely. Will update everything in here! Playing on Allstar. (Will adjust if necessary) Starting from the Memorial Cup Playoffs, right before the NHL Entry Draft
Name: Jerome Beaulieu
Weight: 150 lbs
Junior Club: Baie-Comeau Drakkar
Background: Beaulieu was one of the last drafted at the QMJHL draft. The Baie-Comeau Drakkar chose him because he was said to have some offensive skills, but his shape wasn't very hockey-friendly. The season had gone through, and for the first time in history, the team made it through the QMJHL playoffs to go in the Memorial Cup playoffs. Beaulieu had not been used a lot during the season, but proved himself in the playoffs, enough to earn a spot on the first line. He had gone from a forgotten player to a player projected to get drafted to the NHL. The following matches were critical to determine when he would get drafted.
Baie-Comeau Drakkar 1-0 London Knights (Played entirely)
Important match for both teams, the Knights have a better roster than the Drakkar, but the Drakkar surprised everyone recently with huge success. The game only gets 1 goal, from Lessard of the Drakkar, with assists from Beaulieu and Gelinas. Beaulieu impressed the audience for his great speed and puck control, but he can't resist any checks and he lacks some defence skills. (1 Assist, +1)
Baie-Comeau Drakkar 1-3 Edmonton Oil Kings
The Oil Kings get 2 goals early in the game, thanks to Legault and St. Croix. The 2nd period is silent on goals, but many shots are taken. The last period is lightened up by a goal from Noreau of the Drakkar, but then Wruck from the Oil Kings scores and ends the game. Beaulieu takes over 8 shots and has beautiful opportunities, but can't put it in. (0 points, -1)
Shawinigan Cataractes 3 - 2 Baie-Comeau Drakkar
Shawinigan opens the score really fast with an amazing shot from Veilleux. Only 30 seconds later, The Drakkar answer with the first goal from Beaulieu, on a beautiful slap shot. The 2nd period starts the same way as the first with a goal from Veilleux, and it ends like that. In the 3rd, Shawinigan scores again with a goal from Poudrier and Baie-Comeau will only be able to score again, with a goal from Lepage, but it won't be enough to win it. (1 goal, +1)
MEMORIAL CUP SEMI-FINALS
London Knights 2 -5 Baie-Comeau Drakkar
London owned most of the first period, leading the game 2-1 so far. But Baie-Comeau got their morale up when they scored 2 more in the 2nd period, and 2 others in the third, to win the game and go to the Memorial Cup finals. (1 goal, +/- 0)
The Baie-Comeau Drakkar are truly making history. It is awaited great players from there such as Tomas Filippi, Jonathan Lessard and Jerome Beaulieu will get drafted in the early rounds. Now it all comes down to 1 game, the Oil Kings will do anything to win the Memorial Cup at home.
MEMORIAL CUP FINALS
Beaulieu shows a lot of dynamism and motivation in the first period. He takes many shots, and one of them turns into a goal. Sautner ties the game a few minutes later and the first period ends. Only one goal in the 2nd, by Jerome Beaulieu, will put the pressure. Lots of penalties taken in that period. Beaulieu proves himself as a leader in the third period, scoring for the third time and getting a hat-trick. While the Drakkar really are confident, the Oil Kings refuse to be treated that way at home, and Foster snaps one past the goalie. However, Filippi from the Baie-Comeau Drakkar scores at the very end of the game, to bury the game, and the Drakkar win the Memorial Cup for the first time! Beaulieu's performance leads him to the first star, for 3 goals and 1 assist, an astonishing performance.
Beaulieu is ranked from 1st to 3rd overall relying on all experts. He gave RDS, the french version of TSN an interview, which was translated as follows: Beaulieu truly is impressed, even by himself of how things turned around, he wishes good luck to his teammates in the draft, and when asked by which team he would like to get drafted the most, he answered
and the one he would like to get drafted the least was
Beaulieu was predicted to be drafted by either
are on the clock, and they announce JEROME BEAULIEU as their first round pick. Beaulieu thanks the team and later affirms to TSN that he really is happy to be drafted by the Blackhawks.
Next update: Beginning of the season (Will be a new post)
