Q News Roundup

Been a busy few days in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Here’s a look at some of the stuff that has made headlines this past week.

Anthony DeLuca, selected in the second round of last weekend’s QMJHL Entry Draft by Rimouski, will play for the Oceanic next season. He had committed to the University of Vermont. It’s been a successful couple of weeks for last year’s President’s Cup finalists as they also got Maxime Gravel and Frederic Gauthier to report next season. Turns out the Sea Dogs aren’t the only team who can get players considering NCAA to come play junior. Huh. [The Mack Report]

Eric Veilleux will not be behind the Shawinigan Cataractes bench next season. Radio-Canada reports that he’ll take over as Baie-Comeau Drakkar head coach. [Radio-Canada]

There were only two QMJHL graduates on the Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings. [QMJHL]

Just a few days after the QMJHL Entry Draft, the Moncton Wildcats “parted ways” with chief scout Peter Nevin. Willy Palov reports that Roger Shannon will take over. No official announcement has been made. [Twitter, Twitter]

The Mooseheads expect to have both Martin Frk and Konrad Abeltshauser back next season but they will still be picking in the CHL Import Draft later this month. [Metro Halifax]

Speaking of the Import Draft, the defending OHL champion London Knights will be selecting ninth overall following a trade yesterday. The Moncton Wildcats will select first. [Twitter]
