No it is not since there are a bunch of other Q teams closer to Blainville than Sherbrooke. I study at Sherbrooke and I can tell you that the only local players are those like Comtois who are from the Estrie region (aka Magog Cantoniers players in Midget AAA). Laurentides and Lanaudière are completely different regions from Estrie/Eastern Townships. Pépin being from Candiac, he is closer to Sherbrooke than Audette so he'd be more of a local player than Audette. That local player argument does not hold. Anyhow. I have been impressed too by Léveillé. Not huge but lots of skills and only 2015 NHL draft eligible.
