Forward Zachary Beauregard Acquired from Islanders

2021-08-31

The Mooseheads didn’t have an open 20-year-old roster spot for long. Just hours after parting ways with veteran defenceman Brendan Tomilson, General Manager Cam Russell swung a deal with the Charlottetown Islanders to add some welcomed grit and energy in his bottom six forward group. Enter Zachary Beauregard.

The cost to bring in the high energy veteran was relatively low with Halifax sending a 5th round pick in 2023 to the Islanders.

“We like the style he brings to the lineup for us. He’s the type of player that can be extremely difficult to play against,” Russell said.

“He’s going to bring some veteran leadership and experience. We’re just happy we don’t have to play against him anymore.”

The 20-year-old forward was a thorn in the side of the Mooseheads throughout the season last year with nine assists and 38 penalty minutes in 19 games played against Halifax. Beauregard finished the season with three goals and 17 assists and a QMJHL-leading 82 penalty minutes in 38 games. He has career totals of 168 games, 20 goals, 45 assists and 206 penalty minutes in three seasons with the Islanders since Charlottetown made him a 10th round pick in 2017.
