Alex Beaucage can’t control his delight after scoring the winning goal in double overtime to give the Victoriaville Tigres the President Cup.

In a season that almost didn’t happen, the underdog Victoriaville Tigres shocked the hockey world by capturing the second President Cup in team history. The Tigres sealed the series win June 5 with a 3-2 victory in Game 6 over the heavily favoured Val d’Or Foreurs in front of 2,000 spectators at the Videotron Centre.
