Already in his first season as a professional, the native of Saint-Hyacinthe will take part in a duel in the premier league. The 21-year-old left winger didn’t pass up the opportunity after amassing 36 points in 48 games with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. He has scored 13 points most of the time in his last seven games.

The product of the Moncton Wildcats and Halifax Mooseheads was a fifth-round pick (135th overall) by the Flyers in the 2020 draft.

The Philadelphia team, who lost 5-2 to the Montreal Canadiens on Friday, will meet the New Jersey Devils in the evening.
