Washington Capitals returned Cubeser Hendrix Lapierre to his junior team at the QMJHL on Wednesday morning, the Acad-Bathurst Titan.
That means the 19-year-old spent exactly one month with the team. He played a total of six games, scoring one goal in his first game.
The stated goal caused a lot of controversy, not because of the reaction of veteran TJ Oshi, who picked up the young striker with one hand before hugging him after the score.
“A few days later I realized what had happened and what it meant,” the young man told a news conference a week later. When it happens instantly, you are in the emotion of the moment. Everything looks a little frozen, you really don’t understand what’s going on. ”
After three seasons with Chikoutimi Sagunins, Lapierre was traded to the Acadia-Bathurst Titan this summer. Team 11 is atE General classification rank of the Courto circuit after 15 matches. The arrival of a young center player playing a leading role is certainly anticipated.
Capitals also recalled goaltender Jack Foucault and forward Aliaksi Protas from Hershey Bears in the American Hockey League. Forward Nick Dowd’s name was added to the injured list.
Foucault are 3-0-2 with the Bears this season. It has an average efficiency rating of 1.73 and .933.
The former Montreal Canadians’ second-round pick will be with the team on a two-game tour of Detroit on Thursday and Columbus on Friday.
Head coach Peter Laviolet said goaltender Vitek Vanesek was introduced to Buffalo Sabers on Monday and wanted the team to play safely. However, he did not want to confirm his plans for the next two games.
Foucault, 26, is hoping to play in his first career NHL game.
