With so many defensemen on its roster, the Acadie-Bathurst Titan is trying to thin out its ranks.

That's why Alec Rheaume is on loan to the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies for its upcoming training camp.

Should the 18-year-old denfenseman manage to carve out a spot with the Huskies the Titan will end up with a seventh-round pick in 2021.

General manager Sylvain Couturier says Rheaume was patient but didn't have an obvious role with the club last season and that he deserves to have a chance elsewhere.
