Newbridge Academy Welcomes Xavier Lapointe
Newbridge Academy is pleased to announce the commitment of Xavier Lapointe to the 2018-2019 Major Midget team. The defenceman from St-Jerome, Quebec will be a strong addition to the developing roster. His hockey accolades include two Montreal Meltdown championships and a spot on his city team for the Jeux de Quebec in 2016-2017.
Xavier is joining Newbridge Academy after playing the 2017-2018 season for the Cap Jeunesse Cougars in Saint-Jerome, where he helped his team win the league championship. An offensive defenceman and great leader, Xavier is very excited to pursue his hockey development and academic pathway at Newbridge Academy.
Xavier decided to attend Newbridge because he wants to play NCAA hockey and felt that the program and schedule offered would help him take that next step. He is also eager for the opportunity to strengthen his English speaking and writing skills.
“We are thrilled to add Xavier to our Major Midget team roster. He has a great work ethic and will lead by example on our team,” said Athletic Director Olivier Filion.
