Ron Hainsey -D (Drafted-00(1/13))
Hainsey registered 5 assists through 7 games since our last update. He was shutout during a January 2nd game against St. John, thereby ending a season-high 5-game point-scoring streak. He’s played strong defensively since his return, raising his plus/minus from +1 to +5 after missing 14 games with a wrist injury. Overall, the 6’3″, 200-lbs defenseman has played 23 games. He has 13 points (5-8-13), and is +5 with 10 minutes in penalties. The 20-year old rookie was also named to the PlanetUSA AHL all-star team.
Mathieu Garon -G (Drafted-96(2/44))
Garon has rebounded from a poor stretch of play he experienced immediately following his return to Québec. He’s undefeated in his last 6 games. Through that same stretch he’s lowered his GAA by close to half a goal per game, and raised his save percentage 20 points. Overall, the 6’2″, 192-lbs goalie has a 9-3-5 record with 2.70 GAA, and a .918 save percentage.
Eric Chouinard -F (Drafted-98(1/16))
Chouinard registered 1 assist in 2 games following our last update. He injured his shoulder during a December 27th game against Portland, and is tentatively scheduled to return within the week. Overall, the 6’3″, 207-lbs left winger has played 30 games. He has 26 points (11-15-26), with 8 minutes in penalties. Surprisingly, only 1 of his 11 goals has been scored on the powerplay; which speaks volumes for Chouinard’s 5-on-5 play this season. His plus/minus is even, and he also has 94 shots on goal.
