QMJHL Roundup: Titan's power play leads as Acadie-Bathurst drops Sea Dogs 3-1

SAINT JOHN, N.B. - The Acadie-Bathurst Titan's power-play unit made all the difference in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's season opener.

Raphael Lafontaine and Brandon Hynes both scored on the man advantage Thursday as Acadie-Bathurst topped the reigning QMJHL champion Saint John Sea Dogs 3-1.

Robert Davis opened scoring for the Titan (1-0-0) in the first period, while Jacob Brennan made 26 saves for the win. Lafontaine and Hynes scored in the second.

Stephen MacAulay had a power-play goal for Saint John (0-1-0) and goaltender Sebastien Auger stopped 26 shots.

There was a special pre-game ceremony in honour of the Sea Dogs' 2012 President Cup win, as Saint John raised the QMJHL championship banner to the rafters of the arena.

Quote of the Day

It's very special, obviously; there is draft day and then there's the day that you sign your first deal. It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm very honored to be able to do that."
