Islanders 2019 draft pick jumps into coaching

The Chicoutimi Saguenéens announced today that they had actually included a brand-new aide train. And also it’s a name acquainted to New york city Islanders followers.

Islanders 2019 sixth-round choice Félix Bibeau was called to the Saguenéens training personnel today. The previous Bridgeport Noise Tiger/Islander as well as Worcester Railer will certainly sign up with Yannick Jean’s bench for the 2022-23 period.

Jean claimed this of Bibeau that’s making the dive to training at the age of 23:

” Félix is enthusiastic as well as is extremely thrilled to begin this brand-new obstacle with us. He has a great deal of prospective as well as he’s an essential enhancement to our company,”

Yannick Jean on Félix Bibeau

Bibeau went professional in 2020-21 after 4 years at the QMJHL degree. In those 4 years he played 245 video games in between the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, Québec Ramparts, as well as Chicoutimi Saguenéens.

Over those 245 video games, he racked up 214 factors. His finest analytical year was his last year when he racked up 29 objectives as well as 70 factors in 63 video games. However I make sure if you ask him what his finest year was he ‘d possibly inform you it was 2018-19.

That period, as an aide captain for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, Bibeau, as well as his group – which included Islanders 2018 12th total choice, Noah Dobson – caught the QMJHL Head of state’s Prize and afterwards the CHL’s Memorial Mug.

Because going professional, Bibeau played 41 video games in the AHL as well as racked up 11 factors. At the ECHL degree, he played 15 ready the Worcester Railers racking up 15 factors.

Sure, Bibeau is young at 23 years of ages to make that delve into training yet I assume he understood his profession would not get to the NHL therefore he decided to hang up his skates as well as grab a trainer’s whistle. I actually applaud Bibeau for making the button at such a very early age. Congratulations most likely to him on coming to be an assistant train with his previous junior attire.
