Auger Named To Super Series Roster

SAINT JOHN – Sea Dogs goaltender Sebastien Auger has been named to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s roster for the upcoming Subway Super Series.

Auger was, not surprisingly, the only Sea Dog invited to the event. He’ll join Halifax’s Zach Fucule as the team’s goaltending tandem for the series which will feature the QMJHL’s best Canadians who are eligible for the world junior team taking on a Russian squad.

Auger, 19, is 3-9-0-2 this season with a 2.63 goals against average and a 0.926 save percentage. His GAA ranks fourth in the league, his save percentage is second, and leads the league in saves with 465. He is also fourth in minutes played having started 14 of Saint John’s 17 games.

This is Auger’s third season in the QMJHL. He was a fifth-round pick of Saint John in 2010. This will be his first Super Series.

The QMJHL portion of the Super Series takes place on Monday, November 18th in Gatineau and Wednesday, November 20th in Sherbrooke. The games will be broadcast on Sportsnet and TVA Sports.
