MONTREAL – He didn’t win any major awards, but Jonathan Huberdeau was recognized by the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Wednesday at the annual Golden Puck Awards show.

Huberdeau was named to the first all-star team after an all-star caliber season. The 17-year became the first Sea Dog to reach the triple-digit plateau in points in one season as he recorded 105 in 67 games. He led the squad in goals with 43 and assists with 62.

Joining Huberdeau on the first all-star team was fellow Sea Dog Simon Despres. The ‘Big Horse’ was named the QMJHL’s Defenseman of the Year on Wednesday night as well.

Despres had a long stay at Pittsburgh Penguins training camp and then missed more time as he represented Team Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championships. In 47 games with Saint John, he averaged just under a point-per-game with 13 goals and 28 assists.

Forwards Sean Couturier of the Drummondville Voltigeurs and Jonathan Audy-Marchessault of the Quebec Remparts, defenseman Ryan Kavanagh of the Shawinigan Cataractes, and goaltender Christopher Gibson were also named to the first all-star team.
