EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick – The Edmundston Blizzard will have another explosive forward this season after acquiring Zachary Cadorette, who played with the Lennoxville Collège Champlain Cougars last season in the Quebec College Hockey League (QCHL).
Born in Sherbrooke, Québec, Cadorette, 19, finished first in Cougars scoring with 18 goals and 40 assists in 35 games. His 58 points was second best in the league. In fact, he finished with a meager point behind the league leader.
Interestingly, this acquisition comes a month after that of another star player, Samuel Grégoire. Cadorette and Grégoire were teammates with the Cougars in 2019-20.
A 6’0’’ and 168 lbs centerman, Cadorette played three games with the QMJHL Val d’Or Foreurs last season.
Coach Emery Olauson is really excited by this announcement. “Zach is another highly talented forward to add to our group. Even at only 18 years old he was among the leaders in the entire league in points and was relied on to provide offence on a championship level team. We look forward to seeing Zach along with our talented group of forwards!”
“I’m really happy to join a class organization like this,” Zachary said. I only heard good comments about this organization which helped me take the right decision. Samuel Grégoire is also a factor that influenced my decision. He’s a very good friend of mine and we had a lot of success together last year with the Champlain Cougars. I think I can bring a good offensive side to this team and recreate a season like the one I had in Lennoxville last year! ”
