Corbeil, Huberdeau Awarded Awards

The Saint John Sea Dogs are coming home with two awards from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s Golden Puck Gala which was held tonight in Montreal.

Team captain Jonathan Huberdeau won the Paul Dumont Trophy as personality of the year and goaltender Mathieu Corbeil was awarded the Jacques Plante Trophy for having the league’s best goals against average.

Nathan Beaulieu was nominated for the Emile Bouchard Trophy, awarded to the league’s best defenceman, but the honour went to Rimouski’s Jerome Gauthier-Leduc.

There will be a new Canadian Hockey League Coach of the Year this season as Jean-Francois Houle of the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada beat out the Sea Dogs’ Gerard Gallant for the Ron Lapointe Trophy for the QMJHL’s top coach. Gallant had won the award in both 2009-10 and 2010-11.

Corbeil, Beaulieu, and Huberdeau were all named to the league’s second all-star team.
