Deschamps MIA as junior team advances.

The Moncton Wildcats will compete for the Memorial Cup after clinching the QMJHL title Monday, but will do so without Ducks prospect Nicolas Deschamps.

Deschamps, a second-round draft pick in 2008, has just begun to walk without crutches in his recovery from a leg injury April 23. Wildcats head coach Danny Flynn told the Moncton (New Brunswick) Times and Transcript that Deschamps is “participating in off-ice workouts and steadily improving, but he’s not at the point where he can play yet.”

The Ducks signed Deschamps to a three-year, entry level contract last summer.
