To all female hockey players, coaches, parents, families, and friends. Last Monday we lost one of the players in our community, Melina Boulianne, in a tragic car accident. After learning of Melina’s passing, her grandmother suffered a heart attack from shock and also passed away. Here is a special word from her future coach, Veronique Laramee-Paquette, who would like to pay her respects and offer her condolences to all those this devastation may concern:
"Bonjour, au nom des Nordiques du Collège Lionel Groulx nous voudrions vous demander de mettre une de ces images dans votre fond d’écran Facebook afin de montrer votre support à la famille de Mélina Boulianne, une jeune hockeyeuse qui a perdu la vie Lundi dernier dans un accident de voiture agée de 17 ans. Merci de votre support à tous."
