William Leblanc became Wednesday evening in Saint-Jérôme the second scorer of 50 goals in the history of Inouk. He is now going to tackle the team record, who is 55 and who has been established in 2014-2015 by Érik Longtin.
“This is the first time that I scored 50 and I have to admit that it was a special moment,” says Will The Thrill, who recorded a hat trick and now has 51 goals on the counter. But the more thefun, honestly, is that it helped us win a big game against a good team. “
Leblanc confesses that he began to be anxious to cross the plateau of 50 goals. And he knows that he’s going to start to hear about the record of Longtin.
“The idea is to play the game normally, do what you got to do. This is what I always try to do. To the extent possible, it is important to try not to be distracted by these things. “
Already, it has to be said, Leblanc has the pressure on the shoulders. More and more, through the junior hockey League AAA, one whispers that likely to prevail in the face of Inouk are very good if you are familiar with Leblanc, and the first trio of the team. As has been the Titan of Princeville last Sunday.
“There’s a little bit of pressure, it is true, admits the no. 47. But it’s okay, it’s part of the game. We are here to generate offensive, that is our job. So… “
“It is not crazy “
After the inclined face of the Titan and to have prevailed in Saint-Jérôme, the Inouk have two other beautiful challenges ahead of them at the end of the week : the French College of Longueuil (third in the standings, a point ahead of the Inouk) arrives at the centre sportif Léonard-Grondin on Friday night, and the Cobras de Terrebonne (first) will receive the Granbyens Sunday afternoon. Players of Patrice Bosch have never been so much competition in such a short time since the beginning of the season.
“This is a big week, it is true, takes Leblanc. We don’t like to lose against the Titan at home, but this is the kind of match that would have been able to go from one edge to the other. You have confidence in us, but we are not fools, we know that there are other good teams around the league. “
In the Face of the French College, Will The Thrill says that his teammates and him will have to control their emotions.
“It is always emotional against Longueuil and leaves sometimes take. He will have to play our game and stay in control. It’s going to be good, that’s for sure. “
Cut to the height of the brow during the game against the Titan, Leblanc was still wearing the visor complete to Saint-Jérôme. He should give up the result of the matches of the weekend, ” he said.
