Francis Thibeault, born in Val d’Amour, New Brunswick is a defenseman for the Acadie-Bathurst Titan of the QMJHL.
From 2011-2013, Thibeault played Bantam AAA in the New Brunswick/PEI league, where his offensive prowess was very apparent. In only 48 games in the league, Thibeault scored 8 goals and 27 points… not to mention his 68 penalty minutes.
In 2013-14, Thibeault moved onto Midget AAA, where he continued to score points and prove his offense in Bantam. In 34 games, Thibeault scored 7 goals and added 11 assists. This was a great rookie season and the Acadie-Bathurst Titan of the QMJHL ultimately drafted Thibeault in the 6th round, 98th overall in the 2014 QMJHL Draft.
Francis began the 2014-2015 season with the Miramichi Rivermen. However, in order to accelerate his development he was called up to finish the season with the Campbellton Tigers of the Maritime Junior Hockey League. This turned out to be a great decision as Francis made the 2015 opening night roster with the Titan.
Only 6 games into this season, Thibeault already has an assist, and is looking to continue producing offense from the blue-line for Acadie-Bathurst.Height: 6'1"
