The latest Ultramar Player of the Week is Val-d’Or Foreurs winger Nathan Legare. In a pair of games, the 20-year-old form Montreal scored twice and added an assist while his club took a 2-0 series lead in its Quarter-Final series against the Rimouski Oceanic.
On Friday afternoon, Legare picked up his third goal of the postseason and added an assist on the eventual game-winner as the Foreurs opened their second round series with a 6-2 triumph. The fourth-year veteran, who also finished with a +/- rating of +2, was named the game’s second star.
He would be named the second star the following evening as well. Legare’s goal early in the second period would open the scoring and hold up as the winner in Val-d’Or’s 3-0 shutout victory over Rimouski. The win extended the Foreurs’ perfect record in postseason play to 5-0.
Acquired from the Baie-Comeau Drakkar at the holiday trade period, Legare has been on a roll with the powerful Foreurs, registering 24 points in 19 regular season games with the club. A third round selection of the Pittsburgh Penguins at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, Legare is averaging a point per game in this year’s playoffs.
