Patrick Roy changed his mind and moved on

Patrick Roy said the transaction period in Quebec would undoubtedly be quiet, but his remparts finally won two more champions in the final President’s Cup on Tuesday.

Victoriaville Tigress forwards Conor Frenet and Oliver Coulombe arrived in Quebec on two separate deals.

“This is the moment I’m looking forward to,” Frennett admitted during a conference call. I know my name was mentioned in discussions with some groups. Of course, I was torn by the idea of ​​leaving Victoriaville, with whom I had spent four great years, but I was glad to come to Quebec. ”

Frenet, 20, secured a third-round pick in the next draft and a second-round pick in 2023 as a reward.

Depending on his arrival there are now four 20-year-old athletes at Rimport‌s, but the limit is three. Forward Christopher Farmer (7 goals, 12 assists) has been confirmed by the organization as a player leaving the Red Devils.

“Leadership” and “Mercilessness”

The shock of the deal has passed, with Frenet now hoping to bring her “leadership” and her “ruthlessness” to Remparts.

“We all know that Rimport is a very talented team,” he commented. I faced them with the Tigers this year, I could see. But I’m glad I was able to help them in two respects. ”

Over the past few weeks, Frenet has also been making a name for himself by scoring a lot of points on the board. The veteran center has 36 points from 30 games this season, including 16 goals.

The Gatino native stood out in December. He has at least one point in his seven games, a total of 16.

Familiar place

Both Frenette and Coulombe – who were rewarded with a sixth-round pick in 2024 – are well aware of the VideoTron Center. In Quebec’s defensive environment they lifted the President’s Cup at the end of the last campaign.

“I’m talking about it with my family [hier] In the morning, Frenet said. I’ve spent the biggest moments of my career here and it’s weird trying to live with others, but I’m so happy and it’s not too hard to adapt to the environment. ”

Coulomb, 19, of Montmagni, played his first two seasons in the QMJHL with the Acadia-Bathurst Titan before joining the Tigers.

In 29 games this year, the right winger has scored three goals and eight assists for 11 points.

Frennett says he can’t wait to reconnect with the former Tigers’ former teammates, who are now wearing the red and black colors of Remparts. In addition to Coulomb, the striker also played with Zachary Gravel and Fabio Iacobo last year.

We will be the players who lead others to grow and lead the cup, ”he said.
