June 2023 – Melanson managed 50 goals last season across games with Acadie-Bathurst and Sherbrooke of the QMJHL last season, which was good for 6th in the league. He toned down his penalty minutes, which could be a sign of maturity rather than a quieting of his snarl. Melanson will likely graduate to the AHL next season and start building his professional body of work for Coachella Valley. Alex Wyatt

June 2022 – Melanson put up a 35 goal, 21 assist campaign for Acadie-Bathurst of the QMHL, his second season in a row with more than a point per game. His 35 goals were 15th in scoring league-wide. Melanson also led the Titan in penalty minutes. He’s likely to spend another season in the Q, before getting some seasoning in the AHL on his road to the NHL. Alex Wyatt
