Proulx, Laplante, Fabrici and Pilote make QMJHL Draft final list

In the bustling world of junior hockey, being selected in the final list of the Central Scouting Rankings (CSR) of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) is an impressive recognition. With pride, four goaltenders training with Paramount Hockey have brilliantly climbed the ranks to become among the top prospects in their category.

Firstly, Antoine Proulx (2008) has shown resilience in the face of adversity. After being cut from his region's M18 AAA team, Antoine proved his worth by joining the Lévis team. His unwavering determination shone on the ice, where he dominated the league with an outstanding save percentage of .935 and a goals-against average of 1.97. With 12 victories, 3 defeats, and a shutout in 18 games, Antoine epitomizes the most sought-after goaltending prospect heading into the QMJHL draft.

Next, Thomas Laplante (2008) has a true Cinderella story on ice. After starting in minor leagues and playing in level D2 school hockey, Thomas made a remarkable leap to the M17AAA Espoir team. His rapid ascent is the result of hard work and the support of coach Alex, who even initiated him on an outdoor rink. An inspiring tale proving that the road to the top often begins where least expected.

Lastly, we congratulate Thomas Fabrici (2008), with whom we had the privilege to collaborate through our association with the Conquérants des Laurentides. His impeccable work ethic and unwavering commitment have made him a remarkable goaltender.

Finally, Marc-Olivier Pilote (2008) from Québec, with whom we had the pleasure of working during the Zach Fucale Experience camp in St-Adèle. His dedication and undeniable talent do not go unnoticed, and we are confident that his future in junior hockey will be very promising.

To all the players on the final CSR list of the QMJHL, we extend our sincere congratulations. May this draft be the start of an extraordinary journey in the world of hockey. For those who didn't see their names on the list, remember it's just the beginning of your story. Keep persevering, working hard, and believing in your dreams. Success awaits those who dare to believe and dedicate themselves wholeheartedly.
