Auger Starting Tonight For Team QMJHL

If you haven’t heard, Sea Dogs goaltender Sebastien Auger is expected to get the start in goal tonight for Team QMJHL in Game 2 of the Subway Super Series. This according to multiple media people on the Twitter machine and this lovely pre-game video on the CHL website.

Halifax Mooseheads goaltender Zach Fucale started Monday’s game, a game that saw Team QMJHL defeat Russia 3-2.

Tonight in Sherbrooke, Auger will get the start. He has the Q’s best save percentage (0.919), leads the league in saves (684), and is third in minutes played.

This is a big opportunity for Auger who will be playing in front of the Hockey Canada staff, NHL scouts, and a national television audience.

Tonight’s game begins at 8pm Atlantic and can be seen live on Sportsnet.
