CHL Daily: Remparts collect 50th win

Josh Bloom (VAN) had the overtime winner for North Bay as he completed his hat-trick in a 6-5 win to grab the night’s first star. Traded to the Battalion Nov. 17, Bloom has 52 points (24 goals) in 48 games with North Bay and has hit the 30-goal mark in back-to-back seasons.

Jordan Dumais (CBJ) collected the second star after his three points (2G, 1A) led Halifax to a fourth straight win in an 8-5 victory over Moncton. Dumais leads the QMJHL in points (130) while his 52 goals are third most and is three points shy of taking sole possession of second place in the Mooseheads’ all-time scoring lead.

Etienne Morin’s four points (2G, 2A) earned him the third star despite the Wildcats’ defeat to Halifax. The third highest ranked CHL defencemen for the 2023 NHL Draft, Morin has 20 goals and 65 points and sits fourth in QMJHL scoring among blueliners.
