    Defender Jacob Guévin heads for the United States

    In the past few days, two players who had announced their intention to continue their journey in the United States have changed their rifle and will eventually play in the QMJHL. This is not the case with defender Jacob Guévin, last year's second-round pick of the Sags, who still seems determined to join the ranks of Nebraska Omaha University for the 2022-2023 season.

    On Thursday, striker Cam McDonald, a 3rd round pick from the Saint John Sea Dogs, and goalkeeper William Rousseau, selected in round 5 by the Remparts, both confirmed that they were giving up their American ambitions in favor of The QMJHL. Last month, Peter Reynolds, who was identified as one of the best prospects in the draft and who finally slid to the Sea Dogs in 21st place, made the same decision.

    The file of Jacob Guévin does not seem to have evolved for all that, if one relies on the words of the general manager Yanick Jean. "For now, it's closed. There are so many things that change with COVID that I don't want to speculate for nothing. For the moment, I do not count it in our alignment for the next start of the season, "he admitted when asked on Wednesday about possible developments a year later.

    With his first two picks last year, Yanick Jean made two home runs with defensemen, Oscar Plandowski and Jacob Guévin. Picked 18th, Halifax native Plandoswki had been open even though he had drawn up a team list in the Maritimes but was not convinced. Yanick Jean sent him to the Charlottetown Islanders in return for a first-round pick, as well as picking up a compensatory pick at the start of round three, the 40th overall, on Saturday.

    For his part, Jacob Guévin has never hidden his intentions to opt for the American college route, announcing his colors before the draft. The Sags still tried to hit 29th on the product of the Trois-Rivières Estacades who spent the last season at Northwood School in New York State, in a preparatory league for the USHL, amassing 56 points in 50 games plus four assists in five games with the red team at the World Under-17 Challenge.



    • Saguenéens captain Rafaël Harvey-Pinard was crowned the national student quintessential by Spirit of Saginaw forward in the Ontario League Cole Perfetti. Fifth hope in North America for the next National League draft, Perfetti, who had 11 points in 61 games last season, is also making it through school with an overall average of 93%. Recipient of the Marcel-Robert Trophy, rewarding the QMJLH model student, Harvey-Pinard, who signed a contract last week with the Laval Rocket after having been the Canadiens' 7th round choice, will complete in the coming weeks his college diploma in natural sciences.
