Today, the Sherbrooke Phoenix hit the snowy roads towards the Abitibi region for a pair of back-to-back road games.
Their first test is against the Val-d’Or Foreurs tomorrow at 7:30 pm. The Foreurs are currently seeded 10th in the QMJHL with 24 points on the season.
The Phoenix are currently in 15th place overall in the QMJHL and have 21 points. A win would mean a four point swing against their division rival. A win will also help boost the team’s confidence for their match the next day against the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies (4th, 33 points).
The Phoenix have had to adjust their lineup in the absence of Nicolas Poulin, Kevin Gilbert, Chase Harwell, Nicolas Roy and Olivier Schingh-Gomez, the Phoenix have decided to recall Edouard Michaud from Granby. Michaud, a Sherbrooke native, previously played with the Phoenix against the Quebec Remparts on October 22nd.
