QHS Student drafted in First Round of the QMJHL


Once fierce adversaries, Jacob Sweeney (left) and Tommy Vielleux (right) find themselves teammates with the Victoriaville Tigres. Both were taken in the first round of the QMJHL Draft

This past Saturday, the QMJHL held its entry draft at the Coliseum Desjardins in Victoriaville. Over 200 hockey players from Quebec, the Maritimes and the United States were vying for spots on the 17 teams in the league.

I knew Jake when he was little.  When he was about 8 years old, his favourite movie was "The mighty ducks" and he used to put on his helmet and pads and play along with the ducks as he watched the movie.  He knew every one of their moves and was in perfect sync with them.

All the best, Jake.  I'm proud of you.
