Several Mainers selected in QMJHL draft
By Nathan Fournier Published: 11th June 2013
LEWISTON – In June of 2011, the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League folded the Lewiston Maineiacs, but at the same time instituted a rule in which each team must take two Americans in its entry draft.

Well, that rule has led to more Maine kids being drafted in the QMJHL. In 2011, goaltender Jon Gillies went in the ninth round to the Quebec Remparts, last year Winthrop native Mark Dufour went to Drummondville in the 13th round.

This past Saturday was a banner day for kids who call Vacationland home as four players saw their name called.
