Troy Lajeunesse is making the most of his fourth season with e UPEI Panthers.  

In his fourth season with the UPEI Panthers, forward Troy Lajeunesse has been chosen as the Atlantic University Sport most sportsmanlike player and recipient of the Don Wells Trophy.

Lajeunesse spent four seasons in the OHL from 2014-18, playing for the Sarnia Sting, Erie Otters and Sudbury Wolves. Lajeunesse produced 59 goals, 91 assists and 150 points in 251 regular season games.

An arts student from Sturgeon Falls, Lajeunesse led the Panthers this season in both goals (15) and points (30). His 30 points were good for fourth in Atlantic conference.

Lajeunesse's numbers improved every year while at UPEI. 

"There are a lot of things I can think of that got my game going but two things that stick out for me are probably focussing in the off-season on my weaknesses which is my strength and I really stayed dialed in on that and the other is the COVID-19 year really helped me out and helped me reflect on my game and let me go home and see family and really hit the reset button," Lajeunesse said on the UPEI Panther Primer earlier in the season. 

He played in 28 games for UPEI and took 108 shots while picking up just six minor penalties all season.

In addition to being named the conference’s most sportsmanlike player, Lajeunesse has also been named an AUS first-team all-star this season.

He was also named an AUS second team all-star last season.
