The 1995 born Erik Pion was expecting to have a couple days off before the Christmas break, suprisingly he got a call from the St. Boniface Riels. The Riels faced off against the St. James Canucks for the last game of the MMJHL before Christmas, and being down 3-2 midway through the second period the Riels saw a new face in-between the pipes as Pion was given the nod to head in. The final score of the game ended at 6-4 for the Riels as they came back firing in the 3rd period popping in 3 goals for the win with Pion picking up his first MMJHL victory. This season Pion is playing in the WHSHL with College Jeanne Sauve. Not a bad early Christmas present!
