Normally, a coach would not change the winning list, but Joel Bouchard does this week.
Last weekend, Laval Rocket started their season with two 5-1 wins over the Belleville Senators.
Watch Joel Bouchard’s press briefing in the video above.
“This week, we’re going to change the dynamic a little bit,” Bouchard said Monday after his family’s session. This is the partnership I have made with the players and they understand the situation. We have to train with 35 players and some young people, I have to be smart in everyone’s development. ”
With the complex reality, the driver of the Canadian School Club will make no changes in the heart.
“It’s not ideal, especially how we play over the weekend. As a coach I rarely do what I do. It defies all the laws of hockey. We have chemistry, we are in a good place and I, I’m going to do all this upside down. I have work to do and young people are doing it. ”
Bouchard did not reveal who would be on his list or who would be on Tuesday night when his team faces senators. However, he explained that veterans have to play every other game.
“I have no choice but to let the youngsters play,” he declared.
“I give them every opportunity in the games they play, the power play and the special teams. I want him to be worthy of their pay,” he said of his veterans.
News of those injured
Bouchard took the opportunity to report on the currently injured Kayden Guhley, Alex Belgile and Ryan Pohling.
Still not ready to return for the first two games, Pohling skated Monday and could be in the Rocket lineup on Tuesday night.
The coach said it was the company’s plan to play a lot when Guhley was in a position to do so.
“The plan for Guhley is to play the youngster as soon as the green light is on,” Bouchard said. There was no discussion, we wanted to give him as many chances as possible to play. “
