TTM: Pierre Sevigny
With the World Juniors in full swing, let's post a return from '91 WJC grad, Pierre Sevigny. Pierre was a fan favourite from the 1992 Team Canada squad. A gritty player who could put the puck in the net and the man through the boards. He made the QMJHL All-star team three years in a row, and in the 89/90 season he finished 9th in league scoring while also receiving 207 PIM. At the 1991 WJC, Pierre scored 6 points in 7 games, including a goal in the pivotal Canada vs USSR match-up. While he enjoyed a lengthy and successful career in the minor leagues, he was never able to secure a permanent roster spot with a NHL team. In 4 seasons, he scored 9 points in 78 games. He would retire from professional hockey in 2008. Pierre started planning for life after hockey early. Even before he played a NHL game, he owned, and still owns, a Tim Horton franchise in Quebec City.
