According to information from Sebastien Matte of Sourceduhockey.com, 27-year-old goaltender Louis-Philip Guindon has announced his retirement from professional hockey.

The Quebec goaltender, who played four games for the Laval Rocket in 2021-22, concluded the recent season with a 1-2-0 record, a 4.55 GAA and a 0.853% save percentage. (in the AHL)

He would possibly compete for the 5th or 6th goalie spot in the Montreal Canadiens organization. He could have gotten a job with the Trois-Rivières Lions, but he chose instead to get involved with the youth in his community. Hats off to him!

He will become the director in charge of goaltending for the Lac des Deux-Montagnes Minor Hockey Association.

Guindon is known for his brilliant career in the QMJHL, with the Rimouski Oceanic and the Drummondville Voltigeurs.

On June 13th, the Trois-Rivières Lions acquired his rights.

"Our youth and the entire organization will therefore have an exceptional opportunity to benefit from his knowledge and experience." - Lake of Two Mountains Minor Hockey Association

A very nice challenge for him!
