BATHURST – The Acadie-Bathurst Titan have acquired Washington Capitals prospect Hendrix Lapierre and a 2023 seventh-round pick from the Chicoutimi Sagueneens in exchange for forwards Julien Bourget and Alexis Dube, first round picks in 2022 and 2023, as well as a 2022 third-round pick and 2023 fourth-round pick.

The Gatineau, Quebec product registered eight goals and 23 assists for 31 points in 21 during the shortened 2020-21 season with Chicoutimi.

Dube, a former fifth-round pick of the Baie-Comeau Drakkar, totalled 11 points in 92 career games in Bathurst along with three points in nine playoff games.
