A few days before his first tour of the season, Laval Rocket lost his goalie coach Marco Marciano, but all three of the team’s goals seemed to be in their hands.
Marciano works with Sean Burke’s blockade pending Montreal Canadians. If he is to return on March 19, head coach Joel Bouchard will try to add a member to his team of assistants, as he also lost his assistant Alex Burrows to the Hobbs. He hopes to make an announcement by the end of this week.
Until then the situation was problematic. Bouchard and his staff try their best to help Kaden Primau, Michael McNiven and Vasily Demchenko, who try to help each other to the best of their ability.
“This is the reality of 2021,” Bouchard said via video conference Wednesday. We have no choice. We were with them in the morning. We make sure they have exactly what they need before training. Let them do the same routine exercises. I really look at their position, correcting themselves. I honestly think they have a lot of leadership, but that’s not ideal. ”
The pilot pointed out that the American Hockey League (AHL) is a league, even without the epidemic, in which it is very difficult to be a coach because the profession of the teams is primarily a pool of players and coaches. Clubs of the National League.
“It’s also the American League. The American League is a little leg-league. No one is doing anything to break down on us, it is the reality and profession of the league. Players and coaches change. Things are out of our control. But that’s okay. ”
After playing the first eight games of the season at the Bell Center, the Rocket will embark on a three-game journey next week. He will face the Belleville senators on Monday and Wednesday, and the Toronto Marlis on March 12. The group will arrive in Quebec City on March 14 to welcome Marlis.
