Rimouski forward Alexis Lafreniere captures second straight league MVP award squib
Rimouski Oceanic captain Alexis Lafreniere has added some more hardware to his collection. Lafreniere — the presumptive No. 1 pick at the 2020 NHL Draft — captured his second straight Quebec Major Junior Hockey League MVP award on Thursday, becoming only the second player in history to win back-to-back Michel Briere Memorial trophies. NHL star Sidney Crosby, who made Thursday's announcement, took home MVP honours in 2004 and '05 while a member of the Oceanic.
