The 19-year-old forward, who was named the game’s third star, scored at the 3:10 mark of the second period, assisted by Owen Gonter and Sean E. Clarke. His tally drew the Hawks even at the time, 2-2, in the game, starting Hawkesbury’s run of four unanswered, en route to the victory.

The team also features two other players who call Alexandria home: Jeremy Quesnel and Felix Sauve.

Sabourin, who wears number 7 for the Hawks, has played in seven games thus far this season with the team. Last winter, he skated in 49 contests with the CCHL2 Char-Lan Rebels, recording 48 points and 73 penalty minutes.

The Hawks currently have a record of 13 wins, 12 regulation losses, and 1 overtime defeat, for third place in the Yzerman Division.
