BOUCHERVILLE, Tuesday, December 7, 2010 - The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in collaboration with RDS today announced the RDS mid-season rookie award-winners.
RDS and the QMJHL are longstanding partners. The partnership’s goal is to celebrate the talent and potential of the next generation of hockey players.
"For RDS, it is an ideal occasion to shed light on the talent and the dedication of these young hockey players while encouraging them to persevere to reach their goals," commented Michel Gagnon, the Vice-President of Marketing and Sales at RDS.
Each rookie will be honoured during a pre-game ceremony in the next few weeks with the presentation of a beautiful plaque which recognizes their accomplishments.
