Hendrix LaPierre Excels, But Chicoutimi Sagueneens Eliminated From QMJHL Playoffs

Hendrix Lapierre, the Capitals’ first round pick in the 202o NHL Entry Draft, performed well in this year’s postseason, but it wasn’t enough, as he and the Chicoutimi Saguenéens fell to the Val d’Or Foreurs in the third round of the QMJHL playoffs.

Lapierre scored a goal in his team’s last game on May 20, against the Val d’Or Foreurs. His goal had staked the Saguenéens to a 2-1 lead, which they could not hold, as they fell 4-2 to Val d’Or Foreurs.

Val d’Or Foreurs won three straight games in the best of five series as they advanced to the QMJHL Finals.

For the final round, Lapierre scored two goals and had two points. His playoff statistics for the three rounds were five goals and seven assists for 12 points in nine playoff games.

Lapierre was tied for thirteenth place overall in points and tied for ninth place in assists in the playoffs. For the regular season, Lapierre played in 21 games, scored eight goals and had 23 assists for 31 points.
