Bearcat-of-the-Week honours went to third year junior, Lauchie MacDonald. He scored his first goal of the season in the
opening period of the Valley game, giving the Bearcats a short lived two goal lead. He’s seeing time in all situations.

He got his hockey start in the Bedford Blues Minor Program, working his way through the ranks to the Major Bantam level, suiting up for the Bedford Barons for a pair of seasons. Next up was a season with the Halifax McDonald’s Midgets. The 2016 Dieppe draft pick elected to play High School Hockey in the 2016 – 2017 season with the C.P. Allen Cheetahs. He played forward that year, picking up 19 goals and 14 assists. He played the following year with Yarmouth after acquiring his rights from Edmundston. He came to the Bearcats in the off-season, just prior to the start of last year. Mobility and a right shot have been valuable assets when joining the rush.
