Bearcat -of-the-Week honours went to goalie, Felix-Anthony Ethier. There were several candidates this week, but the nod goes to him based on back-to-back starts resulting in a pair of wins. He turned aside 57 of 60 shots over two games and picked up the team’s, and his, first shutout of the season. The vet gave his teammates the support they required.
He came up through the Bantam program in Boisbriand before two Midget seasons, one with the Saint-Eustache Vikings and one with Saint Hyacinthe. The 2018 pick by the Princeville Titans and Acadie-Bathurst Titans, played the 2019-2020 season in Bathurst appearing in 21 games. He was with the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada in last year’s abbreviated season. The Bearcats acquired his MHL rights from Valley.
National rankings issued Monday show the Truro Bearcats rank fourth in the CJHL, the world’s largest hockey League. It looks good on them.
Friday and Saturday games scheduled for New Brunswick are to be rescheduled.
Truro’s next game is set for Wednesday, October 20, 2021, against Amherst, 7:00 pm at the RECC.
