June 2022 – Emond has really struggled the last couple of years and I think he’s in a tough spot within the organization. He posted a 4.48 GAA and 0.867 Sv% across 12 AHL games and was only marginally better in the ECHL. With the recent signing of Strauss Mann and the presence of Zach Sawchenko, Emond is likely bound for the ECHL again next season, and top prospect Benjamin Gaudreau provides yet another roadblock.

November 2019 – Emond has settled in nicely to his role as a starting goaltender in the QMJHL. After serving as a back-up for the memorial cup champion Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, Emond has taken charge of the crease in hopes of leading them to their second-straight title. His career numbers in the QMJHL are nothing short of spectacular, and he looks to add to those with a strong campaign this season. The Sharks may have something in the 19-year-old netminder. Now, time and experience as a number one will be the rise or downfall of the teenage goalkeeper. Alex Howes

 September 2019 – Emond was among the first group of players cut from Sharks training camp. This is neither a surprise nor a knock on Emond. There are a number of older goalies in camp and simply not enough work to go around. He will return to the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies where he is projected to be the team’s starting net minder this season.

June 2019 – Emond was great this season as the backup goalie for the Memorial Cup-winning Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. His 1.73 GAA and .932 SV% were a vast improvement over last year’s numbers and can only partly be attributed to the improved team he played behind. The Huskies’ starter, Sam Harvey, will be moving on next season leaving the door wide open for Emond to take the reins. He has earned that opportunity and it will be fun to see what he can do as the number-one guy. Chris Legg
