Félix Lauzon had his best season in the QMJHL. After 45 games in the uniform of the Voltigeurs of Drummondville, the attacker of Roxton shows 59 points, including 23 goals, which already represents his best production in his career in the circuit Courteau.
“It’s going well, I can’t say the contrary, he confirms. I was ready when I arrived at the camp of the Voltigeurs, and at the age of 20, it is so different. And of course, I play with a saprée good team… “
Good team, indeed. Second in the general standings of the QMJHL behind the Huskies of Rouyn-Noranda, the Voltigeurs have won 35 of their first 45 games, who are clearly intended for the major honours this season. But there is more to it than that in the success of Lauzon.
“In 20 years, you know the league almost by heart, you’re comfortable and the pressure is not the same, does it. Me, I have not participated in the two camps of the national League, so I have nothing to lose… “
Lauzon landed in Drummondville after having played four seasons with the Victoriaville Tigers, who have traded to the Voltigeurs to the result of the last campaign.
“Honestly, the adaptation to a new team went very well. The guys have been really great with me. Then, I was a little worried about arriving in a new family pension, but it’s going very well this side also. Really, it is going well ! “
With the Voltigeurs this season, Lauzon is no shortage of responsibilities. It asks to generate the offensive, sometimes on the case of the best trio team and it is regularly used on the numerical advantage.
“In 20 years, do you expect to have responsibilities. Not that this was not the case in Victoriaville, but I get a lot currently. And this is thefun. “
But above all, Lauzon tripe really to the idea of doing a long way in the playoffs.
“It was a big club, we are solid everywhere. The goal is to make it to the tournament for the Memorial Cup and it has what it takes to do it. It would end up so well my internship junior… “
Lauzon says that he will continue to play hockey the next season. But where, he does not know anything yet. Not the biggest nor the largest, he never dreamed of in the national League, we know it.
“There are studies that are also important. Well, we’ll see. But for the time being, I want to make the most of my last moments in the QMJHL. “
Disappointed for Corbeil
Félix Lauzon was also very close to the young Benjamin Corbeil, that the Voltigeurs have traded the Armada of Blainville-Boisbriand in the last few weeks. The Roxtonais was the big brother of the Granbyen, neither more nor less.
“I was disappointed when I learned of the transaction, admit one who is an assistant captain for Voltigeurs. But Benjamin has a talent, insane and it will surely make its place in the QMJHL. We talk a little less often, of course, but we stayed in contact. I will always be there for him. “
