The Charlottetown Islanders have hit the road on the infamous Northern Quebec road trip. The trip will keep the Isles on the road for 3500 kilometres this week; the first leg begins tonight against the high-powered Gatineau Olympiques.

The Islanders (9-9-1-0) came away with a strong character 2-0 victory over the Halifax Mooseheads this past Saturday. The victory pulled Charlottetown back to the .500 mark on the season. Francesco Lapenna put together a sterling 36-save performance for his second shutout of the season.

Meanwhile, the Olympiques (11-7-2-0) sit second in the QMJHL’s Western Conference following a 4-2 victory over the Victoriaville Tigres Sunday afternoon. Despite plenty of fluctuation to the lineup throughout the season, Gatineau have found success on and continue to build on that, with reinforcements soon to be on the way. 

ROSTER UPDATES

Charlottetown

Forward Owen Hollingsworth will be a game-time decision. Defenseman Isaac Vos remains out week-to-week with an upper-body injury and did not accompany the team on the trip.

Gatineau

Forwards Olivier Nadeau (shoulder), Manix Landry (clavicle), and Antonin Verreault (wrist) are all out long-term. Defenseman Isaac Belliveau (upper-body) and goaltender Tye Austin (lower-body) are both listed as out indefinitely.

Forward Cole Cormier will serve the second of a two-game suspension.

PLAYERS TO WATCH:

Charlottetown

  • Giovanni Morneau picked up an assist in the victory on Saturday. The 5’9 forward has had a great November with seven points in six games thus far.
  • Francesco Lapenna continues a torrid pace of play in 2022. The 20-year-old sits third in the QMJHL with nine wins and fourth with a .926 save percentage.

Gatineau

  • Vegas Golden Knights first-round pick Zachary Dean has five points over his past three games, including a two-point effort against the Tigres. Dean has had a great start to the season with 20 points in 17 games.
  • Chicago Blackhawks prospect Samuel Savoie has had arguably the best November thus far among all QMJHL players. Savoie has at least a point in each of the five games he’s played this month and eight points overall.

SERIES AT A GLANCE

The Islanders and Olympiques have not played yet this season. Last year, Charlottetown defeated Gatineau in their two matchups last season.
