Olivier Nadeau had an impressive game on Saturday with seven points, including four goals, with the Shawinigan Cataracts 8-5 victory over Blanville-Boisbriand Armada.
The selection of the Buffalo Sabers into the fourth round in the Final Draft kicked off what was supposed to be a highly productive game with his eighth goal of the season in the 11th minute of play in the opening period. He returned to charge before the end of the clash when he was a partner in Xavier Bourgault’s goal that took the score to 2-1 Cataractes.
Nadeau made the red light flash on the power game early in the middle of the period. Miguël Tourigny made sure Armada stayed in the match with two goals to his record. He also hit the target with a penalty kick.
But that match was for Nadio, who completed a hat-trick in the third game to break the tie 5-5. He added about the strength of the game after seven minutes, with his fourth goal in the match. He finished his meeting with his seventh point with a decisive pass on Martin Haas’ goal.

The Saguenéens were also opportunists in such a situation with three goals in four attempts. Alex Blais and Felix LaFrance were the authors of the other power goals in this game. Belgardi scored his second goal in the empty net.
Rimouski Oceanic was able to fight back against Val d’Or Fours to win 4 to 3.

Oceanic dominated the game before the end of the second half, courtesy of Alex Drover, with his fifth goal of the season. Xavier Cormier gave his team a two-goal cushion and these nets made the difference. Since midway through the third half, Jérémy Michel made the ropes shake in favor of Val-d’Or.
Despite the four goals allowed, William Blackburn can congratulate himself in front of the Fourors cage with a total of 45 passes. Patrick Hammerla turned 35 of 38 balls against his net.
