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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
