Audette is not from Sherbrooke.

His father is a good friend of Jocelyn Thibault who is an owner of the team. Audette was a logical choice, he's the most talented player from that draft. What weighted a lot in the balance though, is the fact that his name was very good to sell tickets, considering the fact that his father played for the Habs and whatnot. See it as a big PR move.
