Dave Ainsley Le Quotidien With their first choice of this draft, in the 33rd place, the Saguenéens began to prepare the succession of goalkeeper Alexis Shank with the selection of Rémi Delafontaine from the Cantonniers de Magog. This is a logical choice because their goalkeeper coach, Alexandre Carrier, occupies the same role with the Estrie team led by the former goalkeeper of the Chicoutimian organization Félix Potvin.
“We've known each other for a long time. He knows how I work and I know how he likes to 'coach' his keepers. We already have a chemistry together, ”to agree the sixth goalkeeper claimed in a solid vintage between the two posts.
“It's a place that I have heard nothing but good about. I'm happy to be with this organization, ”said the new member of the Sags who last year, with the best team in the midget AAA, accumulated impressive statistics with an average of 1.93 and a percentage of .926, registering 15 wins in 21 decisions.
Now identified as Alexis Shank's successor, Rémi Delafontaine remains calm, like a goalkeeper after all. “I don't challenge myself to absolutely do the Saguenéens next season. If they decide to keep me, so much the better, but if they decide to take me down because they think I'm not yet ready enough, I'll take it and improve myself even more in Magog. I will arrive at the camp ready, ”said the goalkeeper who according to observers has a very high level of competition.
