CFQY3f9WMAAqRz9.jpg-largeRobidoux Finishes Season As Top Dog

Zac Robidoux may have not played as much as he would’ve liked this season, but he was between the pipes when it mattered the most. Robidoux wasn’t even a member of the Portage Terriers when the season began as he was with the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League. A quick trade in August saw him land in Lethbridge with the Hurricanes where he stayed until early January. Upon being reassigned by the Hurricanes, Robidoux joined the Portage Terriers where he had already spent the 2013/2014 season. Robidoux was able to get into 7 of the remaining regular season games posting a solid record of 5 wins and only 1 loss. His numbers were equally impressive with a Gaa of 1.77 and Sv% of .927. Robidoux also put up one shutout in his 7 appearances. As the MJHL playoffs rolled around Robidoux was only able to get into one playoff game. He made the most of that start making 27 saves for a shutout over the Waywayseecappo Wolverines. After defeating the Steinbach Pistons in the MJHL championship series, Robidoux and the Terriers headed off to Fort McMurray, AB to compete in the Crescent Point Western Canada Cup. Robidoux was solid in two starts at the Western Canada Cup going 2-0 with wins over the Melfort Mustangs (SJHL) and the Penticton Vees (BCHL). He finished the tournament with a Gaa of 2.00 to go with a Sv% of .922. At the conclusion of the Western Canada Cup, the Terriers headed home to Portage La Prairie to host the Canadian National Junior A Championship, the RBC Cup. The Terriers were joined by the other top 4 Junior A teams in Canada, the Penticton Vees (BCHL), Melfort Mustangs (SJHL), Soo Thunderbirds (NOJHL), and the Carleton Place Canadians (CCHL). RobidouxWith the RBC Cup on the line, Robidoux had taken over the starters role going 4-0 with a Gaa of 1.75 and Sv% of .923. With the strong tournament, Robidoux found himself in net on Sunday night when the Terriers faced off against the Carleton Place Canadians in the championship game. In front of a sold out PCU Centre, Robidoux was solid making 26 saves as the Terriers cruised to a 5-2 win over the Canadians to take the RBC Cup. The Terriers also made a bit of history as they were the first MJHL team to win the RBC Cup since the 1974 Selkirk Steelers. They were also the first host team to win the RBC Cup since the 2005 Weyburn Redwings. Everyone at GDI would like to congratulate Zac on a great season and for winning the RBC Cup. Robidoux has been training with GDI for many years through 1v1 lessons and the Total GDI Academy. ________________________________________________________________________________________________ In The Crease
