Goalie blockbuster headlines QMJHL draft

By Nathan White

In a typically dramatic multi-team draft-day deal, Edmonton Oilers prospect Oliver Roy ended up being dealt for the second time in as many days in the QMJHL.

As was rumored, the Acadie-Bathurst Titan acquired the goalie for his 19-year-old season, one day after the Lewiston Maineiacs had obtained his rights from the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. The trade ended up giving Lewiston the first pick, which they used on defenseman Dillon Fournier, whose brother, Stefan, plays for Lewiston.
