Joshua Roy and the Phoenix are eliminated

After Riley Kidney on Wednesdayit was Joshua Roy’s turn to see his QMJHL season come to an end.

The Canadiens prospect and the Sherbrooke Phoenix were eliminated in six games by the Halifax Moosheads.

The Quebec Remparts will now face the Moosheads in the final.

In Halifax’s Game Six win, goaltender Mathis Rousseau stopped all 42 pucks headed his way. He helped his team win 1-0.

The QMJHL’s top scorer in the regular season, Jordan Dumais, missed a fourth consecutive game for the winners, but his team had no trouble in his absence. Indeed, the team maintained a 4-0 record and scored 16 goals during that stretch. It’s worth mentioning that Joshua Roy and his club won the first two games of this series, but Halifax took advantage of a three-out-of-four-game stay at home to win the next four.

Quebec City and Halifax, who finished first and second respectively in the QMJHL, will cross swords on Friday in Quebec City in game one of the final. This is the 17th time in history that the two best teams have faced each other in the grand final. Logic has thus been respected.

As for Roy, he was likely playing the last game of his junior life. The Quebecer signed his NHL entry-level contract just over a year ago, and it feels like he’s more ready than ever to make the jump to the pros.

In 55 regular-season games this season, Roy collected 99 points. And 24 in 14 playoff games. Really, the kid is too dominant for this league.

Will the Tricolore’s former fifth-round pick be able to translate that success to Laval and/or Montreal? We hope so. He’s got the talent to do it, but there’s bound to be a period of adjustment.

Owen Beck (Petes), Logan Mailloux (Knights) and Jared Davidson (Thunderbirds) are the only three CH prospects still alive in Canadian junior. Mailloux has booked his ticket to the finals, and Beck is currently playing. His team is trailing 3-2 in the series.

Davidson’s game number six takes place tomorrow. His team leads the series 3-2.

In a gust

– Arber Xhekaj was in Hamilton.

– Ah well.

– Total domination.

– Serious business.
