    The QMJHL unveil the roster for the RE/MAX Challenge


    (Longueuil, Tuesday October 28, 2003)- Gilles Courteau, Commissioner of the
    QMJHL, today announced in press conference the roster for the CHL RE/MAX
    Challenge. Gilles Courteau also announced the name of the two honorary
    captains who will be in Halifax and Rimouski.


    The best QMJHL Canadian players, eligible to the National team pre
    selection training camp for the World Junior Championship (no 20-year-old
    players) will play 2 games against Russian team inside the CHL RE/MAX
    Challenge which will be held in November. The first game will be on
    Thursday, November 20th at the Halifax Metro Centre and the second one will
    be on Monday, November 24 at the Rimouski Coliseum. The players selection
    was done by Mr Blair Mackasey, Hockey Canada head scout, with two (2)
    general managers of the QMJHL, Doris Labonté (Rimouski Oceanic) and
    Stéphane Pilotte (Val-dOr Foreurs).

    Here is the roster:

    Goaltenders:
    Corey Crawford (Mon), Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers (Chi) and Marc-André Fleury (Cap).

    (Maxime Daigneault (VdO) will participate if Fleury is absent)

    Defensemen:
    James Sanford (Mon), Patrick Coulombe (Rim), Bruno Gervais (Bat), Doug
    OBrien (Gat), Alexandre Picard (Cap), Rosario Ruggeri (Chi) and Nathan
    Sanders (Mon).

    Forwards:
    Patrice Bergeron (Bat), Marc-André Bernier (Cap), Steve Bernier (Mon),
    :bow: Sidney Crosby (Rim) :bow: , Stephen Dixon (Cap), François-Pierre Guénette (Cap), Jean-François Jacques (BaC), Alexandre Picard (Lew), Marc-Antoine Pouliot (Rim), Dany Roussin (Rim), Maxime Talbot (Gat) and Cory Urquhart (I.P.É.);

    (Michael Lambert (I.P.É.) will be there if Patrice Bergeron is absent)


    Former defenseman Cam Russel, from Halifax, will be the honorary captain
    for the game in Halifax. Russel got a nice hockey player career with the
    Hull Olympiques (1985-86 to 1988-89), the Chicago Black Hawks and the
    Colorado Avalanche, where he ended his professional career in 1998-99. He
    also was assistant coach with the Halifax Mooseheads from 2000-01 to
    2001-02. Former right winger Louis Sleigher will be the honorary captain in
    Rimouski. Sleigher, born in Nouvelle, Quebec, played with the Chicoutimi
    Saguenéens (1976-77 to 1977-78), for team of the EHL and AHL and with the
    Quebec Nordiques until 1984-85. He was then traded to the Boston Bruins and
    ended his career in 1985-86.

    Finally, these two (2) important games will be broadcast on Rogers
    Sportsnet; the game in Rimouski will also be broadcast on RDS. During this
    important CHL RE/MAX Challenge, the Russian team will also play against the
    OHL and the WHL.

    He is there. They just didn't put the "Marc" before the Antoine. After Picard, before Stewart.

    To my recollection, no 20s, no Euros allowed on the team.

    I live in Maryland, but am really excited about the young talent up in Canada. Does anyone know how I can get a ticket to one of the RE/MAX games?

    Even more surprising (to me) is the absence of Josh Hennessy. Roussin is good but Crosby and Pouliot helped his stats a lot.


    It's good to see that most of those guys are 85 so they will also be available for next year WJC.

    If Fleury is not released by Pittsburgh, it's Maxime Daigneault who will fill his spot.

    Martin Houle could have been a good choice, but the Q have so many great goalies :yo:

    Do you think they will have a Rimouski line or the line of Bernier-Pouliot-Roussin reunited for the tournament.

    How about a Nova Scotian line of Dixon-Crosby-Urquhart, with their Martime pals Sanford and Saunders on defence?
