Short-handed Rocket topple AHL’s top team

Short-handed Rocket topple AHL’s top team

A standout performance by Connor LaCouvee and a pair of Hunter Shinkaruk goals powered Laval to a win. After a bitter loss in Belleville on Thursday night, the Laval Rocket returned home for the first of two games against the Charlotte Checkers this weekend, and got the homestand off on the right foot with a 4-2 win. They were without their two regular goalies, lost Karl Alzner and Victor Mete to the Canadiens, and now they’d be missing both Noah Juulsen and Byron Froese, who were hurt against the Senators. In net, Etienne Marcoux ceded his spot to ECHL call-up Connor LaCouvee, which...

Senators trip up Rocket in a high-scoring affair

Senators trip up Rocket in a high-scoring affair

That left Etienne Marcoux as the de facto starter, and backing him up would be Kevin Bailie of Queen’s University. This was due to the fact that ECHL goalie Connor Lacouvee, who was signed to a PTO...
