The Olympiques have acquired Thursday forward Olivier Bourret and a 14th round pick in 2020 from the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in exchange for a 7th round pick and a 12th round pick in 2020. The latter pick belonged initially to the Rimouski Oceanic.
A Verdun native, Bourret was selected in the 3rd round (43rd overall) by the Screaming Eagles in the 2016 QMJHL Draft.

In three years in the QMJHL, Bourret registered 24 goals and 57 points in 179 career games.
