Wildcats call up goaltender Phillipe Gaudreault
MONCTON N.B. – The Moncton Wildcats have called up 17-year-old goaltender Phillipe Gaudreault, after Matthew Waite’s injury during Wednesday night’s game vs. the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.
Phillipe Gaudreault was drafted by Moncton in this summer’s draft and is currently playing this season with the Terrebonne Cobras of the QJAAAHL. The 5’10” 174 lb netminder hails from Clermont QC, and has had an impressive season to date, playing 12 games and recording 11 wins with a 2.07 goals against average and a 0.929 save percentage.
“Phillipe has had a great first half of season with his Junior AAA team and is off to a 11 and 0 record” said Director of Hockey Operations, Roger Shannon. “As Matthew works to recover from an injury in his recent game in Cape Breton, this provides a great opportunity for the staff to evaluate Phillipe for next season.”
Phillipe played last season with Wildcats forward and third overall pick, Jakob Pelletier. Both were part of the championship Blizzard du Séminaire Saint-François team.
