Home Team: Team QMJHL
Record: 0-0-0-0
Notes: There are three Sea Dogs on the roster in Yann Sauve, Simon Despres, and Michael Kirkpatrick. This is the only game Kirkpatrick will play in… only eight players on the roster are not drafted by NHL teams with many of them being eligible this year for the first time… Val-d’Or Foreurs’ defenseman Marco Scandella will miss the first game of the Subway Super Series. Following his arrival in Drummondville yesterday afternoon, Scandella complained of dizziness and, as a precaution, was returned home to rest. He will be reevaluated on Tuesday... both teams will be put to the test with the ice surface being 190' X 85'
