After a long year of waiting on the sidelines, defenseman Sebastien Bernier will finally be playing for the Tommies this coming Friday night against Acadia in Wolfville.

Originally from Lac Saint-Charles, QC this well travelled D-man last played for 3L du Riviere-du-Loup of the LNAH until December of 2010.  Previous to this, Bernier played for the Castors d'Avignon of the French Division 1 League and the Matane Castors of the LHSEQ.

In the junior ranks Sebastien played for 7 teams in his 4 year QMJHL career.  His best year being his overage one where he totaled 52 points between Gatineau and Rimouski in 2007-08.

When Chris Van Laren returns to the line-up against Dalhousie on January 6th, it will give STU 8 D-men and if everyone is healthy, the possibility of a full roster plus one.  Bernier is expected to be very similar in style to rookie Felix Poulin.  With the season Poulin is having lets hope the comparison is an apt one.

Welcome aboard Sebastien!
