Team QMJHL Sweeps Series

For the first time since 2009, the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League has swept Russia.

Team QMJHL defeated Russia 4-3 tonight in Sherbrooke, completing their Subway Super Series sweep. The Q won the first game of the series on Monday, 3-2.

Phoenix forward Daniel Audette had a goal, an assist, and was named player of the game for Team QMJHL. Anthony Mantha, Christopher Clapperton, and Anthony Duclair also scored for the Canadian squad.

In net, Sea Dogs goaltender Sebastien Auger made 22 saves in the win, including a few beauties in the third period when the game was on the line.

Also, there was an ugly collision in the second period of this game. Ugh.

The Super Series continues tomorrow night in Oshawa when Team OHL hosts Russia.

Elsewhere tonight…

  • In Fredericton, former Sea Dogs Spencer MacDonald, Jordan Moore, Alexandre Leduc, and the STU Tommies men’s hockey team ended a 36-game losing streak against UNB, defeating the Varsity Reds 3-2 at the Aitken Centre. It was a forgettable game for Mike Thomas who picked up two minor penalties and a 10-minute misconduct.
