Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Quebec Remparts 4 @ Halifax Mooseheads 3 (SO)

C/W Adam Erne, QUE: 1-0-1, E, 10 PIM, 1 SOG, 1 Hit, 5/9 FO
Season totals: 29 GP, 12-23-35, E, 45 PIM
2012-2013 Season: 68 GP, 28-44-72, +11, 67 PIM

C/W Jonathan Drouin, HAL: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 0 Hits, 4/7 FO
Season totals: 23 GP, 17-33-50, +18, 22 PIM
2011-2012 Season: 49 GP, 41-64-105, +48, 32 PIM

What was supposed to be a match up of two of the Lightning’s top prospects turned into a sideshow of sorts as Erne hit Drouin from behind in the game and was ejected. Drouin was hurt on the play but played on the ensuing power play before leaving the game with concussion symptoms. Erne had a goal before his hit, extending his point streak to nine games. Before the incident the two had exchanged stick taps to acknowledge the other. The two were prospect standouts at the Lightning’s camp in September and will likely be on the Lightning in the next 1-2 years together – if not on the same line together. They’ll certainly remember the time Erne knocked himself and Drouin out of a junior game. Hopefully Drouin is okay; he may have a scar to remember the hit.
