Rimouski won the President’s Cup as QMJHL champions with a 2-1 double-overtime win Monday night. The game was wide open and tense and both teams had dozens of chances to win the game in a scoreless third period and first overtime. The Nics finally took advantage of a penalty taken when a Rimouski player got behind the Quebec defense and was hauled down.
Adam Erne finished with 21 goals in 22 playoff games and was second in playoff scoring to Halifax’s Nikolaj Ehlers (Jets). Despite not being on the winning side, Erne won the Guy Lafleur Trophy as the playoff MVP -- a huge honor.
Both teams will go to the Memorial Cup tournament in Quebec City, hosted by the Remparts, starting next week.
