After Thomas Boucher, his brother Simon comes to Edmundston

EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick – Edmundston Blizzard management has confirmed the arrival of star goaltender Simon Boucher for the upcoming season. Simon Boucher is the brother of former Blizzard goaltender Thomas Boucher, who shined for the Edmundston team in the 2022-23 season.

A native of Lévis, Québec, Simon Boucher is 19 years old, making him eligible for junior hockey for the next two seasons.
