Alexandria native and former student-athlete at le Relais Kieran Craig recently garnered his first major junior hockey goal, with the Gatineau Olympiques.
Playing on the road December 30 against the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada, Craig assisted on his team's first tally, in the opening period. In the second stanza, he found the target himself, notching his first career goal at this level of hockey. The Olympiques won the game 3-2.
Craig is a 17-year-old left winger and a rookie in the QMJHL.
On the season to date, he has 7 points in 32 games. Gatineau sits in fourth place in the Western Conference, with a record of 14-19-2-1.
