Record Staff – For the 12th consecutive year, the Montreal Canadiens have teamed up with the Fondation de l’athlète d’excellence (FAEQ) to reward the next generation in women’s and men’s hockey. Prior to the recent NHL game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Anaheim Ducks at the Bell Centre, 29 of Quebec’s most promising hockey student-athletes each received a $1,500 scholarship from the team’s general manager, Marc Bergevin. Two among them were from Sherbrooke; Chloé Gendreau, who plays hockey for the Champlain Cougars, and Justin Robidas, who plays for the Cantonniers de Magog.
