Armada’s Alex Barré-Boulet named CHL Player of the Week

Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that forward Alex Barré-Boulet of the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada is the CHL Player of the Week for the playoff week ending April 23 after scoring five goals and five assists for 10 points in four games with a plus-minus rating of plus-3.

Barré-Boulet recorded a trio of multi-point performances last week for the Armada who came back to defeat the Acadie-Bathurst Titan in a seven-game QMJHL quarter-final series, followed by a two-game split to open league semi-final action against the Charlottetown Islanders.  Last Monday night he contributed three assists in the Armada’s 4-1 Game 6 win over the Titan to even the series, then earned first star honours in Game 7 on Tuesday scoring his first career playoff hat-trick and adding an assist in the 7-1 series-clinching victory.  Although held off the scoresheet in a 3-0 loss to the Islanders in Game 1 of round three action on Friday, Barré-Boulet led the offensive charge in Saturday’s Game 2 with two goals and an assist as first star of the 5-4 win.

A 19-year-old from Montmagny, QC, Barré-Boulet is playing in his third QMJHL season and first with the Armada who acquired him midway through this season from the Drummondville Voltigeurs.  The 5’10’’, 158 lb, centre currently leads the QMJHL playoff scoring race with 12 goals and 12 assists for 24 points through 13 games after finishing the regular season campaign 11th in league scoring with 81 points in 65 games including 33 points in 28 games for Blainville-Boisbriand.

Also considered for the award this week was last week’s recipient Reid Gardiner of the Kelowna Rockets who scored three goals and two assists for five points in two games of the WHL’s Western Conference Final against the Seattle Thunderbirds.  In the OHL, Alex DeBrincat of the Erie Otters scored three goals and four assists for seven points across three games which included a Game 7 win over the London Knights and a 1-1 series split in the Western Conference Final against the Owen Sound Attack.
