The Gatineau Olympiques earned a 3-2 comeback win over the Montreal Juniors on the same day they dealt away their leading scorer.

At the Robert Guertin Centre, Tye McGinn scored two goals, including the game-winner with 2:01 left in the second period. Jean-Gabriel Pageau also scored for the Olympiques (20-15-3), while Maxime Clermont turned aside 26 shots to earn the win.

Jeremy Gouchie and Matthew Brenton scored for the Juniors (16-17-3).

Prior to the game, the 'Piques consummated a six-player, three-draft choice deal that sent their leading scorer, overager Alexandre Quesnel, to the Val-d'Or Foreurs.

Gatineau received 17-year-old right wing Alex Noel, defenceman Benjamin Lecomte, 19, overage winger Keven Guerette-Charland and a 2011 first-round pick. Along with Quesnel, Val-d’Or also got 19-year-old centres Nicolas Boyer and Alexandre Touchette and fifth-round picks in 2010 and 2011.

The 'Piques are back in action on Wednesday at Lewiston.
