In 1991, during the Tournament the Memorial Cup in Quebec city, it was the year of the Chiefs of Spokane with Ray Withney, Pat Fallon, the tough guy Kerry Toporowski (memory, 505 penalty minutes only in the regular season) as well as the excellent Trevor Kidd in front of the net.

However, in between the matches, it was not necessary to be a great soothsayer to see that a romantic relationship was being born between the young journalist that was Stéphane Leroux and the director of communications of the QMJHL of the time, Manon Gagnon.

Of this relationship, which lasted for several years, were born two children, a boy named Jasmine, that I met when he followed his father in the arenas of the region.

Today, I hear it sometimes when I listen to his reports on the League de hockey Midget AAA, at around 23: 15, during the famous Hello athletes, led by Ron Fournier.

Jasmine was succeeded by John ” JR ” Robillard, one of the dolphins of the ex-sports journalist Marc Lachapelle of the Journal de Montréal.

What was my surprise to see him who is now an adult — was at the helm of the Hockey Magazine that he runs in the company of the ex-hockey player Denis Gauthier, Jr. on the airwaves of RDS. Of course, his father doing there part of the furniture…

Comfortable in front of the camera, in addition to being an excellent communicator, he seems to have a nice career in sight !

Bonne année à tous les sportifs! (2e partie)

The young Jasmin Leroux, son of Stephen, is promised to a beautiful career.
