Playing the Russians
Summerside’s Noah Dobson, centre, defends for the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) squad against the Russians Tuesday at the Eastlink Centre in Charlottetown. Dobson is a defenceman in his second season with the Acadie-Bathurst Titan. The QMJHL won the game 3-1 as the Canadian Hockey League took a 3-2 lead in the best-of-six series. Shawn Boudrias and Drake Batherson scored power-play goals for the winners while Nicolas Guay potted an empty-net goal. Assists went to Peter Abbandonato, Maxime Comtois and Joe Veleno. Andrey Altybarmakyan from Alexey Polodyan replied for Russia, who played Monday in Sudbury, Ont. Samuel Harvey earned the victory while Alexey Melnichuk took the loss.
