Bearcat-of-the-Week honours for Week 3 went to goalie, Alec MacDonald. He got the nod in two of Truro’s three games
this week, a 2-1 loss in Amherst and a 5-3 win in Pictou County. He turned aside 33 shots in Amherst and 41 in the Crusher game, to be named the game’s First Star. He’s been tending to his business.
He came up through the Truro and Area Minor Program enroute to spending a pair of seasons with the Truro Major Bantam Bearcats. Next up was a season with the
Newbridge Academy Program playing U 18 hockey. He followed this with a simple season with the Weeks Midgets, which included a callup for four games with the Moncton Wildcats. The 2016 Bearcat Territorial pick enjoyed a strong MHL rookie year in 2017 – 2018, posting a 2.13 GAA in 12 games and having his name inscribed on the Young – Knickle Award, with Kevin Resop, for having the League’s fewest goals against.
Last year, he suited up for 20 games, compiling a 2.82 GAA, and being a member of the Eastlink South All-Star squad participating in the Eastern Canada Challenge. As a third year Bearcat, he’s been handed the reigns from the get-go. His tandem mate, Sebastien Plamondon (18), is another experienced goalie giving Truro a seasoned duo.
The Bearcats are on the road for three games in as many nights. Tonight they are in the South Shore to face the Lumberjacks at 7:00 pm.
Friday, they’re off to Fredericton to face the first year Red Wings.
Saturday, the Amherst Ramblers host the Bearcats in a 7:00 pm matchup.
