Joseph heading to Canada Russia Series

Saint John Sea Dogs forward Mathieu Joseph will play for the QMJHL all-star team at this year's Canada Russia Series event.

21 Canadians from the QMJHL were named to the team, which will take on a Russian junior squad on Nov. 15 in Chicoutimi and Nov. 17 in Baie-Comeau.

This is the second straight year Joseph has been named to the QMJHL team. He appeared in both games last year, scoring twice.

Joseph is off to a great start with Saint John this season, recording 12 goals and four assists in just 11 games.

The Canada Russia Series is used by Hockey Canada to help determine who gets invited to world junior camp. Thanks to his hot start, Joseph is no doubt on Team Canada's radar.

All six games of the series - which feature all-star teams from the WHL, OHL and QMJHL - will be broadcast nationally on Sportsnet and TVA Sports.
