A Fresh Start for Melanson
Jacob Melanson is getting a fresh start closer to home.
The Quebec Remparts have dealt their former first rounder to the Acadie-Bathurst Titan.
Melanson is an excellent addition to already solid young core group of Titan forwards.
The Titan are making all the right moves when bolstering their lineup to ensure a solid playoff run this season for their young talented squad.
Melanson has faced his fair share of adversity over the past two seasons.
Adversity or just horrible luck.
The 17-year-old forward has had two shoulder injuries in as many seasons, but is ready to prove he can be an impact player at the QMJHL level.
Melanson’s perseverance and persistence is truly unparalleled.
The gritty skilled forward is ready to take flight after rehabbing for the bulk of two months at home.
No one has ever questioned the Amherst, Nova Scotia products skill, determination and heart.
Jacob Melanson has taken the long road throughout his career not by design, but by necessity.
That journey continues in Northern New Brunswick.
“I want to thank the Quebec Remparts for everything while I was there, and for taking me 15th overall in the 2019 draft,” said Melanson.
“I am excited to be heading to Bathurst as they are building a championship team. I am looking forward to being a part of that process,” added Melanson.
There’s nothing like a great comeback story, especially when it happens to amazingly strong and deserving players and people.
