Good luck Marc-Antoine!» - Trois-Rivières Lions



Standing six feet four inches tall and weighing nearly 200 pounds, the 22-year-old defenseman from Trois-Rivières only played 12 games under the direction of Ron Choules, accumulating just one assist during his time in the Quebec organization.

He will now join the Fort Wayne Komets, who are currently fighting for first place in the Central Division with a record of 20 wins, 16 losses, and four overtime defeats.

As for the Lions, after a historic start to the season, things have become much more complicated, now ranking fifth in the North Division, just one point away from the last playoff spot.
