QMJHL roster announced for next month's Super Series against Russian junior team

TORONTO - The Blainville-Boisbriand Armada and the Halifax Mooseheads lead all Quebec Major Junior Hockey League teams with four players apiece on the Team QMJHL roster for the 2012 Subway Super Series.

The Val-d'Or Foreurs were next with three players on the 25-man roster, released Tuesday by the Canadian Hockey League. Rouyn-Noranda Huskies coach Andre Tourigny will handle coaching duties for both Team QMJHL games against the Russian national junior team.

Game 1 is set for Nov. 5 in Boisbriand, Que., and Game 2 will be played Nov. 7 at Val-d'Or.

Team OHL and Team WHL will also play two games apiece against the Russians over the six-game series. The CHL has won the series in eight of the last nine years.

Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
