For the first time since January 13, Ryan Tesink played a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game.
Tesink, who had been suffering from a knee injury, made his return to the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada lineup last night in Baie-Comeau. The Drakkar took Game 1 of the semi-final playoff series, 2-1.
The St. Louis Blues prospect had five shots in the loss along with two hits, one faceoff win, and four minutes in penalties. Most media who watched the game said he looked pretty good out there.
Christian Marti had the Armada’s only goal. Jeremy Gergoire and Valentin Zykov scored for the Drakkar.
Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is today at 5pm.
The other semi-final that features the Halifax Mooseheads and Rouyn-Noranda Huskies begins tonight at 7pm at the Metro Centre.
