Huberdeau's suspension won't affect WJC status

Saint John Sea Dogs forward Jonathan Huberdeau will not miss any time at Hockey Canada's National Junior Team selection camp in Calgary this week despite receiving a four-game suspension by the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Monday.

The trouble started for the Florida Panthers prospect late in the third period of a loss to the Halifax Mooseheads on Sunday when Huberdeau and MacKenzie Weegar of Halifax dropped the gloves. Huberdeau received an automatic suspension for instigating the fight, in addition to an automatic three-game suspension for abusing an official after a linesman was injured in the altercation.

Neither the International Ice Hockey Federation nor Hockey Canada will uphold the league's suspension, so Huberdeau will not miss any time at Canada's camp slated Dec. 11-13 at the Markin MacPhail Centre at Canada Olympic Park. Huberdeau actually arrived in Calgary on Monday.
