Montreal defender Olivier Galipeau is the only representative of the Lions of Trois-Rivières, the Canadiens' school club. This season, he leads the rear of the Mauricie team with five goals and 15 points in 19 games.
Galipeau even had the right to an audition with the Laval Rocket, with whom he had played 18 games in 2021-2022. He was shut out of the scoresheet in five AHL games.
This means that Anthony Beauregard, who sits at the top of the Lions scorers with 20 points in 24 duels, was not invited to the all-star game.
The other Quebecer invited is rather the native of Magog Patrick Guay, of the Ghost Pirates of Savannah. The former Charlottetown Islanders and Sherbrooke Phoenix scored eight goals and 20 points in 17 games.
Members of the Norfold Admirals, the host club, as well as two players from the women's hockey organizations Premier Hockey Federation and Professional Women's Hockey Players Association will also participate in the all-star game.
