Picco se­lected for Ri­mouski Oceanic

The Southern Gazette - - SPORTS -

De­fence­man An­drew Picco has made the Ri­mouski Oceanic of the Que­bec Ma­jor Ju­nior Hockey League.

An­drew, from Marys­town, had an out­stand­ing camp this month. He only had 10 weeks to pre­pare for camp.

Ri­mouski is a Me­mo­rial Cup con­tender and An­drew is ex­pected play a reg­u­lar shift in the top six de­fence.

The coach pub­licly stated in the lo­cal news­pa­per An­drew will play a reg­u­lar shift and will have an im­me­di­ate im­pact this year call­ing An­drew “a first rounder,” and would have been only for his in­jury last year. His doc­tor only re­leased him from his con­cus­sion in early June.

An­drew signed a con­tract Aug. 17 and re­ceived all the ben­e­fits a first rounder would have re­ceived. He then played in his first ex­hi­bi­tion game that night against Vic­to­ri­av­ille, which Ri­mouski won 3-2, play­ing a solid game.

An­drew is still in Ri­mouski prac­tic­ing with the team, pre­par­ing for the sea­son opener.

Picco is a son of Glen and Brenda Picco of Marys­town.
