Af­ter Mon­day night’s home-ice loss that ended the sea­son for the Alexan­dria Glens, at least one young fan went to bed happy, re­ceiv­ing a hockey stick from the goal­tender.

Mom Josée Jeau­rond later posted to Face­book, “Merci Ni­co­las Rousseau! Ce soir, j'ai un petit garçon qui voulait dormir avec son nou­veau bâ­ton puisqu'il vient d'un gar­dien qu'il ad­mire beau­coup! Beau tra­vail à toute l'équipe. Vous avez bien joué tout au long de la sai­son.” (Trans­la­tion: Thank you, Ni­co­las Rousseau! Tonight, I have a very happy boy who wants to sleep with his new hockey stick, be­cause it comes from a goalie that he greatly ad­mires! Con­grat­u­la­tions to the whole team. You played great all sea­son long.)

Alexan­dria’s net­mind­ing tan­dem this sea­son in­cludes Bren­nan Nadeau, who says of his re­la­tion­ship with Rousseau that the two are close and he “learns so much from him.”

Of Rousseau he adds, “he’s been un­be­liev­able for us down the stretch and in the first round; he gives us a chance to win ev­ery time he plays.” –


YOUNG FAN: Glens goal­tender Ni­co­las Rousseau presents his hockey stick to Vin­cent Levert, age 8.
