Following a stellar month of January, Alexis Lafrenière has been named QMJHL Rookie of the Month.
Lafrenière put points up in nine of his team’s 11 games and ended the month of January with a total of seven games of two points or more. As impressive as his 18 points is Lafrenière’s +11 differential that came thanks to the fact that he ended no January games with a negative ratio.
This past January 26, the 16-year-old youngster scored his second hat trick of the season in a 5-2 win over Shawinigan. Lafrenière is topping many statistical categories among rookie skaters, including goals (29), points (56), game-winning goals (6) and plus-minus differential (+24).
