NHL.com @NHL

Zachary Fucale, who started in goal for Canada at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship, was named to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League team for the 2014 Subway Super Series, the Canadian Hockey League announced Wednesday.

The final two games of the Super Series will be played Nov. 18 in Bathurst, New Brunswick, and Nov. 20 in Rimouski, Quebec.

Fucale, a Montreal Canadiens prospect taken in the second round (No. 36) of the 2013 NHL Draft, went 2-2-0 with a 2.42 goals-against average and .902 save percentage in five games. He stopped 19 of 20 shots in a 4-1 win against Switzerland in the quarterfinals but allowed four goals on 22 shots in a 5-1 loss to Finland in the semifinals.

In eight games this season with the Halifax Mooseheads, Fucale is 3-4-1 with a 3.46 GAA and .900 save percentage.

Joining Fucale from last year's World Junior team will be forward Frederik Gauthier, a 2013 first-round pick (No. 21) by the Toronto Maple Leafs. Gauthier has yet to play this season for the Rimouski Oceanic because of an injury sustained during the Maple Leafs' rookie camp.

One other NHL first-round pick was named to the team, defenseman Samuel Morin, taken by the Philadelphia Flyers with the 11th pick of the 2013 draft.

Also named to the roster was 2015 NHL Draft prospect center Nicolas Roy of the Chicoutimi Sagueneens, an A-rated player on NHL Central Scouting's player to watch list. In 14 games the 6-foot-4, 199-pound forward has two goals and three assists.

Rosters for the Russia team will be announced at a later date.
