The mental aspect of play is crucial for high-performance goaltenders around the world and Bouchard is no exception.
Despite some disappointing team finishes, the standout individual performances of Gee-Gees athletes this year can’t be overshadowed.
Even though the Gees ultimately lost to the Université de Montréal Carabins by a final score of 2–1, they didn’t go down without putting up a fight.
The Gees only have four games remaining before the playoffs, and while they are holding on to second place in the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ), they’re not guaranteed anything yet.
The Gees faced their cross-town rivals on Jan. 13 for the third of four meetings between the teams this year. The two teams combined for 18 goals in their first two meetings, with Ottawa coming out on top both times, so a high-scoring game was to be expected.
