Jeremie Blain's Victoriaville Tigres were swept in their opening-round series against Baie-Comeau. This has to be a hugely disappointing result for Blain and his teammates who had a much better regular season (44-18-6; +83) than their opponents (29-34-5; -24). Blain himself was not part of the solution in this series. He had two assists, seven shots on goal and a -5 rating. With this earlier-than-expected exit, there's some chance that Blain will join the Oklahoma City Barons just like Brandon Davidson did last year.
