The contract of the Canadian forward would have expired at the end of the year, but the Ajoulots have decided to activate their option.

According to Le Quotidien Jurassien (relayed by SwissHabs), Maxime Fortier will wear HC Ajoie's jersey not only until the end of the year but until the end of the season. This report has been confirmed by the club itself in the afternoon. Fortier was hired in October to make up for the injury-related absences of Guillaume Asselin and Jonathan Hazen.

Moreover, the same source reports that Canadian defender Jérôme Leduc has recovered from his back problems. If he will already be in their lineup against Lausanne HC on Saturday remains to be seen.
