Alex-Olivier Voyer Named Ultramar Player of the Week for Week 8
November 11, 2019 - Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) News Release
The latest Ultramar Player of the Week is Sherbrooke Phoenix winger Alex-Olivier Voyer. In two games, the 20-year-old form Sherbrooke scored three times and added four assists, helping propel the first-place Phoenix to a pair of lopsided wins.
On Saturday night at home, Voyer would waste no time getting on the board. His 14thgoal of the season, scored just 45 seconds into the contest, would prove to be the game-winner as the Phoenix defeated the Val-d'Or Foreurs 7-0. Before the night was over, the fifth-year veteran would add a pair of assists to his point total.
Back at home on Sunday afternoon, the Phoenix Assistant Captain would score twice more and throw in a pair of helpers in Sherbrooke's 10-4 triumph over the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada. It was the first career four-point outing - and eleventh multi-point game of the year - for Voyer, who would also be named the third star of the contest.
On the season, Voyer has amassed 33 points in 20 games, good for a ninth-place tie in the QMJHL scoring race. The game-winning tally on Saturday night was his league-leading fifth of the campaign. A first-round selection of the Rimouski Oceanic at the 2015 QMJHL Draft, Voyer was invited to NHL training camp with the Boston Bruins prior to the start of this season.
