Mooseheads’ L’Heureux Suspended Four Games

The QMJHL has suspended Halifax Mooseheads’ forward Zachary L’Heureux for four games, the league announced on Saturday.

The 2021 NHL Draft-eligible prospect was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct and removing a player’s helmet in Friday’s game versus the Charlottetown Islanders. He received two game misconducts, an instigator penalty, and a fighting major. He was taken out of the game late in the first period.

Prior to leaving the match, L’Heureux collected a primary assist on the first goal of the game, just 22 seconds in.

Teammate and Philadelphia Flyers’ prospect Elliot Desnoyers was also given a game misconduct on the play, as was Islanders’ Drew Johnston. The Mooseheads went on to win 5-4.

L’Heureux looks to be a first-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft. This season, the prospect has collected six goals, six assists, and 12 points in 11 games. He sits second in points on the team and among draft-eligibles in the league.
