RDS journalist Luc Gélinas had his column this morning on 91.9 Sports. He told a story about the excellent JF Chaumont of the Journal de Montréal.

Chaumont went to New York last week to do an interview with Lafreniere.
The Rangers are very protective of the young man.
"They overprotect Alexis Lafreniere. He doesn't talk the morning of games and he doesn't talk the night before games. If you want to talk to him for Saturday's game, hope there's a practice on Thursday. Or if not, when he scores a goal, he talks after the game." - Luc Gélinas

Chaumont got quite a surprise...
"Jean-Francois, like the guys from Quebec, we always wait for that, the English speakers do their job and when he feels that it is not bad finished, begins a question to Alexis, Alexis begins to answer him in French and the Rangers' publicist stopped the interview. He said: "If you want to continue, it's in English, there is no French here". The two of them looked at each other, Jean-François obviously thought of sacking his side, but he was paid there to do the interview. They did the interview, Jean-François and Alexis in front of everyone, in English, because Chris Drury refuses that." - Luc Gélinas

A complaint should be made about this to the NHL, according to Gélinas. The publicist apologized the next day.
