The inaugural game of the Trois-Rivières Lions

The inaugural game of the Trois-Rivières Lions was played Thursday at the magnificent Colisée Vidéotron in Trois-Rivières. Without a doubt, one of the most beautiful moments of the award ceremony was when the crowd rose to applaud for several minutes the former defenseman of the seven-cup-winning Canadian Stanley, Jean-Guy Talbot.
