While the Washington Capitals European prospects, such as Aliaksei Protas, are participating in international competition, at least one Canadian prospect is participating in pre-season hockey for his junior hockey team. None other than Hendrix LaPierre, who the Caps drafted in the first round of the 2021 NHL Draft. His team, Acadie-Bathurst Titan, faced the St. John’s Sea Dogs in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) preseason action on Saturday.

Lapierre assisted on the fourth goal scored by Acadie-Bathurst. Cole Huckins scored at 2:17 into the second period while the team was on the power play. Lapierre earned the primary assist while Jacob Melanson earned the secondary assist. The score was 4-1 in favor of Acadie-Bathurst Titan.

Lapierre scored the team’s fifth goal at 4:57. He got assists from Noah Ryan and Jacob Melanson.  This put Acadie-Bathurst Titan up 5-1.

Lapierre served as the first line center in this game. He also served as the Captain, although the normal Captain for Acadie-Bathurst Titan for this season is Logan Chisholm.

As it turns out, Acadie-Bathurst Titan added one more goal to make the score 6-1. But St John’s mounted a comeback, scoring two goals during the second period and then two more during third period. The final score was 6-5 in favor of Acadie-Bathurst Titan.
