Concordia Stinger goaltender Jonathan Lemieux earned an impressive four honours when the OUA announced its men's hockey all-stars and major awards on Thursday afternoon.
He was named the OUA East Goaltender of the Year and the OUA East Rookie of the Year. He was also on the first all-star team and the all-rookie team.
Joining Lemieux on the conference honour roll are: Isiah Campbell and Kyle Havlena, both of whom were second team all-stars, and Samuel Desgroseilliers who was selected to the all-rookie team
Lemieux, whose hometown is Beloeil, Que., played in 21 regular season games and had a 16-4 win-loss record. His goals-against average was 1.98, which was tops in the OUA and the second best performance in U Sports. His .933 save percentage ranked second in the OUA and fourth nationally.
‘We were a dominant team, one of the best defensive teams in the country, and Jonathan was a major asset,” said head coach Marc-André Elément. “He’s a very athletic goaltender with a very good hockey IQ.”
Lemieux joined the Stingers in September after spending a month in the Philadelphia Flyers rookie and main camps. Previously, he played five seasons in QMJHL, primarily with the Val d'Or Foreurs.
Campbell, a second-year left wing from Pierrefonds, Que., was the Stingers’ leading scorer with 10 goals and 14 assists in 26 games. This is his third conference honour. Last season he was a first team all-star and a member of the all-rookie team.
Havlena, a second-year defenceman from Pointe Claire, Que., picks up his first OUA award. He played 25 games, collecting two goals and nine assists.
Desgroseillers, also a defenceman, played in 24 regular season games, picking up four goals and 14 assists. He’s from Valleyfield, Que.
