Anthony Beauregard played his first game with the Laval Rocket since signing an amateur tryout contract on March 20. This deal comes after the Concordia Stingers men’s hockey forward won the Most Outstanding Player award in U Sports this season, recording 60 points in 28 games. The Stingers season came to end earlier this month following an 8-1 loss to the University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds at nationals.
“I want to prove that I can play in this league. I just want to be in the lineup everyday. I just want to prove to the organization that I can play at this level,” Beauregard said. “The game is just faster. These guys are big, they’re strong. I think I did well today, but I need to bring that every game.”

“I felt great. It was a great experience.The result was bad, but at the end of the day, it was good for me and was a great first game,” Beauregard said. “I want to play at this level. I want to play for Laval. We don’t know what’s going to happen at the end of the season, so I just want to do my best and play well.”
