Bridgewater’s Luke Woodworth looks ahead to Memorial Cup

By Kevin Northup May 17, 2024 | 6:00 AM

Bridgewater’s Luke Woodworth is a QMJHL champion.

The 19-year-old captained the Drummondville Voltigeurs to their first title since 2009.

The Volts swept the top-ranked Baie-Comeau Drakkar in the league final.

He says it was incredible, and a long-time coming.

“You get flashbacks to all the hard times over the last four years, everything we went through as a team, it makes it all worth it. To do it there, with that group of guys, it’s a feeling you can’t describe,” said Woodworth.

Now the Volts are preparing for the Memorial Cup in Saginaw.

Woodworth says they are feeling confident, and it will come down to how they execute.

“It’s the top competition in the CHL, so we won’t be playing any bad teams. We have to treat every game like our last, one slip up and we could be out.”

When it comes to the future, he has one more year of junior hockey left.

“I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but Drummondville for my 20-year old season, it’s become my second home. I’ve had a lot of support from both here and back home in Bridgewater, I’m so proud to be from there.”

Drummondville’s first game at the Memorial Cup will be Saturday, May 25 against the OHL champion London Knights.
