The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League is proud to announce the
Excellence Challenge from May 2nd to the 5th, 2013. The goal of this
challenge is to create continuity in the delivery of the Program of
Excellence of Hockey Canada and more specifically the under 17 program.
The Excellence Challenge will be able to help our players be more
prepared and organized in order to continue their development as
athletes for the various Hockey Canada teams.
It will also help
the League better identify the best prospects in Quebec and the Atlantic
Provinces by providing a venue where teams of 20 players under 16 years
of age will be able to showoff their skills competing for the QMJHL
Gold Cup awarded to the best team.
“This is a terrific
opportunity to see future QMJHL prospects and shed the spotlight to some
of the brightest young talents our country has to offer,” said QMJHL
commissioner Gilles Courteau.
Teams will be formed from each one
of the Maritime Provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI and
Newfoundland in addition to two Quebec based teams. The event will be
held at the Centre d’Excellence Sport Rousseau in Blainville-Boisbriand.
