By pbadmin

BOUCHERVILLE, Monday, November 13, 2006 – Acadie-Bathurst Titan forward Thomas Beauregard and Cape Breton Screaming Eagles goaltender Ondrej Pavelec were named the TELUS offensive and defensive players of the week for the period extending from November 6 to 12.

In four games, Beauregard collected eight goals and assisted on two others while maintaining a healthy +5 (plus/minus) differential. Furthermore, three of his goals were game-winners. Beauregard registered back to back hat-tricks on Saturday and Sunday to extend his consecutive point streak to ten games as well as helped the Titan accumulate seven out of a possible eight points in the standings. Moreover, he is the league’s top goal scorer with thirty-three. He also sits in third place in the QMJHL scoring race with 49 points.

Claude Giroux (5-3-8) of Gatineau, Mathieu Roy (4-5-9) of Val-d’Or and Cam Fergus (5-1-6) of Cape Breton were also considered.

The defensive player of the week award goes to Screaming Eagles backstop Ondrej Pavelec. In two games, he collected two wins while maintaining a 1.50 goals-against-average and a .957 save percentage. He blocked thirty-one shots in a 7-2 win over the Drakkar on Friday, and then followed-up that strong performance with a thirty-six save effort in a 4-1 win over the Saguenéens, earning him the game’s first star. Thanks in large part to his outstanding play, the Screaming Eagles allowed only one shorthanded goal in seventeen tries. Cape Breton is in first place in the Eastern division standings.

Defensemen Andrew Andricopoulos (2-5-7; +6) of Quebec and Sébastien Piché (0-2-2; +4) of Lewiston as well as goaltender Brant Miller (2-1-0; 1 SO; 182 MIN; 1.98 GAA; .935 SAV %) of Acadie-Bathurst were also considered.
