Drouin, Mantha take TELUS tribute

The QMJHL’s draft eligible stars continue to shine bright.

Both Anthony Mantha and Jonathan Drouin, two of the league’s top talents for the 2013 NHL Draft, were named TELUS stars of the week after a pair of incredible offensive outbursts.

Drouin was named the league’s second star immediately after returning from an injury that sidelined him since October 6th. In three games back in action for the Halifax Moosheads, Drouin scored five goals and eight points. Overall, Drouin has 10 goals and 23 points in 10 games, leading the league in points-per-game. In his 10 games played, the five-foot-11 forward has been held to under two points just twice.

If Drouin is the hottest draft eligible in the QMJHL right now, Mantha is nipping at his heals. The Val D’Or Foreurs forward compiled eight points, including four goals and an assist in a 5-4 win against the Rimouski Oceanic Friday. The six-foot-three forward has been just as effective throughout the season with 15 goals and 28 points in 15 games – fifth in league scoring.
