Carl-Anthony Massé joins the Blizzard

EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick –Edmundston Blizzard general manager Steve MacPherson has made another big trade less than 48 hours after getting Dominic LeBlanc. This time, he has just acquired 19-year-old forward Carl-Anthony Massé, who was playing with the QMJHL Quebec Remparts this season.

To acquire Massé, the Blizzard had to trade to the Valley Wildcats the rights to Dylan Andrews (Acadie-Bathurst Titan), a 4th-round pick in the 2024 draft, a conditional 4th-round pick in the 2025 draft and future considerations.

Born in Rivière-du-Loup, Carl-Anthony Massé was released from the Remparts a few days ago. In 28 games with Québec, he collected four goals and three assists. A fine scorer, he was mainly used on defensive duties, as reported by journalist Kevin Beaulé, of CIEF-FM. He played his last game with the Remparts on December 16.

In 2022-2023, Massé was the Quebec Collegiate Hockey League’s scoring champion, with 26 goals and 36 assists for 62 points in 36 games. He played for the Saint-Laurent Patriotes.

Dylan Andrews was a 9th-round pick (103rd overall) by the Blizzard in the 2021 midget draft. With 5 goals and 11 assists in 38 games this season, he is part of the Titan’s regular line-up.

The Blizzard play their next game on Friday (7:30 p.m.) at the Jean-Daigle Centre, when they host the Miramichi Timberwolves.
