It was a disappointing start to the week for Capitals’ forward prospect Hendrix Lapierre, but things were starting to look up by the time the week was coming to a close. On Sunday Lapierre was cut from Canada’s National Junior team for the second consecutive year, but on Friday Lapierre was back in the swing of things scoring in his first game back with Acadie-Bathurst in the QMJHL. He would add two more goals and an assist in his next game on Saturday.

Friday night was Lapierre’s first game back with Acadie-Bathurst. He would tally the team’s second goal of the game in a 3-2 loss to the Halifax Mooseheads.

Lapierre continued his goal scoring in the the Titan’s next game on Saturday night against the Saint John Sea Dogs. His first goal came early in the third period to tie the game.

Lapierre’s second goal would come on the power play to give the Titan a 3-2 lead late in the game. The Titan would hold on for a 4-3 win. Lapierre was the first star of the game.

Lapierre’s game is finally starting to pick up some steam. He now has five goals and 13 assists in 11 games played with Acadie-Bathurst.
