There is no longer a big-league baseball team in Montreal, but the closest junior hockey team apparently has a new designated quitter.
New Jersey Devils first-round pick Stefan Matteau's turbulent season, which has included being suspended by the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada for rough play, missing out on Team USA's world junior championship triumph and making his NHL debut at age 18, has taken a rather volatile twist. Details are slowly being filled in, but Stéphane Leroux (@StephRDSJunior) of Réseau des sports (RDS) is reporting that Matteau has quit the Armada, who are down 2-0 in to Baie-Comeau in a QMJHL semifinal series. It's understandable that a 19-year-old could have trouble working through frustration, but he has created a spectacle.

Armada GM Joël Bouchard is holding a press conference at 9:30 a.m. Monday to clarify the situation. Both RDS and QMI Agency states that the 19-year-old Matteau did not even take the team bus home after being benched during the third period on Saturday.
