Laval Rockets coach Joël Bouchard often said that his job is to train hockey players. On Tuesday, he got a good opportunity to show his vision for development.
“The basis of the defender is to defend,” Bouchard continued in a video conference after the exercise. You can give a person a few minutes. […] Some people need more work to finally reach the NHL. “
In order to make Brook a player who can regularly develop on the Bettman Tour, Bouchard therefore gave him a defensive task.
“The player must find his bread and butter quickly. [pour atteindre la LNH]. As far as Brook is concerned, I believe he must play a high-level shot above 200 feet and become an excellent defensive guard. It is becoming so. “
“We are very happy and proud of Brooke’s game. He did a great job,” added the school coach of the Montreal Canadian School.
“His game has laid a solid foundation. He is different from last season’s players. It has developed and matured. He has played longer and has played longer.”
In addition, four players who have been injured in recent weeks have returned to training with the Rockets, forwards Jesse Ilonen, Jan Messack, Lucas Wijdmore and Alex Belziller.
However, Bouchard does not know if they will be able to face Toronto Marie on Thursday night, when the Queens City Club will visit the Bell Center.
