Newbridge Academy U18 Player Announcement – Victor Desjardins
The Newbridge Academy Varsity Prep team is excited to announce the signing of 16 year old goaltender Victor Desjardins. Victor, a grade 11 student, joins Newbridge from Saint-Jérôme, Québec.
Victor has been very passionate about hockey from a very young age, and unlike many young hockey players from Quebec, he has always had his sights set on playing in the NCAA instead of the QMJHL. Recently, he has played for the Selects du Nord Major Bantam and Midget Espoir teams. In tournament play last season, Victor was named his team’s MVP in 5 of the 7 games he played. More importantly, Victor is a first-class student who had one of the best averages in his school last year.
“I want to be somewhere I can progress in school and in sport, and eventually I hope to achieve my childhood dream of playing in the NCAA. I am very proud to become a part of the Newbridge Academy Varsity Prep Team!”-Victor Desjardins
“I am very happy to add a well-rounded student-athlete, such as Victor, to the program. He comes highly recommended and from a very successful program. He will really solidify a great 1-2 punch in nets with Gavin McGinn. I look forward to working with him both on the ice and in the classroom!” – Matt Anthony, Head Coach.
