The St. Joseph de Beauce, Quebec, native won the 2004 Hobey Baker Memorial Award as the nation’s top collegiate player after scoring 63 points (32-31-63) in 45 games for Minnesota-Duluth. As a senior at UMD in 2004, he led the school to its first Frozen Four appearance since 1985, and was the national leader in both goals and points.
