Acadie-Bathurst Titan acquire Cataractes' captain
When Acadie-Bathurst Titan General Manager Sylvain Couturier says he's 'all in', he means business.
The Titan have sent defenseman Olivier Desroches, along with a third round draft pick in 2020, and a fifth round pick in 2019 to Shawinigan for Cataractes' captain Samuel Asselin.
The 19 year old forward has notched 9 goals and 22 assists in 38 games this season and was drafted by Shawinigan in the fifth round at the 2014 QMJHL draft.
Olivier, meanwhile, has recorded five assists in 28 games.
The Titan are second in Maritime Division standings, five points shy of the Halifax Mooseheads.
They're scheduled to face-off against the Baie Comeau Drakkar at the KC Irving Centre on Thursday.
