The Flin Flon Bombers have a handful of players from La Belle province on their roster with all enjoying a great deal of success in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League this season.
Two are among the league scoring leaders and a third would likely be in that conversation if not for more than a month of inactivity as Tristan Lemyre is averaging more than a point per game in his first SJHL campaign.
The 18-year-old forward from Mirabel, Que. has 18 points in 17 games including multiple-point performances in his last three outings. The 5-foot-9, 165-pound Lemyre, who had a three-point showing in his debut on opening night, has points in his last four games and has been held off the scoresheet just once in the last eight Bombers contests.
A seventh-round pick of the Victoriaville Tigres in the 2018 Quebec Major Junior Hockey League entry draft, spent last year with Newbridge Academy where he had 17 points in a dozen games. As a 16-year-old he collected 31 points in 40 games for the Saint-Eustache Vikings of the Quebec Midget AAA Hockey League and in his first year of midget hockey he registered 35 points in 32 games with the Nord Selects.
The Bombers have the most explosive offence in the league and Lemyre has and will undoubtedly continue to play a big part in that. Flin Flon has been on a roll of late and if Lemyre, who is used in a variety of situations, continues with his strong play the Bombers have a chance of going deep in the playoffs and possibly winning a title for the first time since 1993.
