Rocket: The season is over for Joel Teesdale, Joseph Blondici and Michael Pezetta

Laval Rocket announced Monday that forwards Joel Teesdale and Joseph Blondisi will be out this season.

Both Teesndale and Blondisi suffered a knee injury that required surgery.

Without explaining the severity of the Teesdale injury, head coach Joel Bouchard said his young player suffered a knee injury similar to last year. Kubeker was kept out of the game for 21 months, which delayed his professional start.

“It was frustrating in every sense of the word. […] I have been injured often in my career and seriously, it really hurts our hearts, the players and the team of coaches, ”said Bouchard, who did not want to comment on the injury.

“He needs a period of operation and rehabilitation, but his career is not in danger. In both cases, these are serious interventions,” Bouchard said.

In his first season with the Rocket, Teasdale had 8 goals and 10 assists in 26 games. Blondie has 10 goals and 11 assists in 28 games.

In addition, on April 23, rocket striker Michael Pezetta suffered a broken face. He has since undergone surgery and will need four weeks of recovery, which will also end his season.

Pazzetta has 2 goals and 3 assists in his record in 20 games.
