The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League annonced today that Victoriaville Tigres’ right-winger, Brandon Hynes will replace Saint John Sea Dogs’ Jonathan Hubedeau for the first game of the SUBWAY® Super Series. Quebec Remparts’ Anthony Duclair will take his place on Wednesday for game 2. Huberdeau was injured during Team QMJHL’s morning skate in Victoriaville.
Any details on what happened?
Docs haven't confirmed it yet but early indications are that Huberdeau has a broken bone in his foot. Hope that doesn't keep him out of WJC.

Sounds like Huberdeau could be out for around a month...I hope to god he isn't out for the WJC. We haven't had a prominent presence there on the dogs front in...well, ever. Dido was a top-liner, but majorly overshadowed by Tavares. Nobody could possibly be surprised by that, anyway. Despres played a good shut-down role last year, but rarely, if ever, do the shut-down guys get noticed. Hubs would definitely be a depended-on scorer, for sure.
So.... Saint John is a lock for the memorial cup now?
Are they rumored to be picking up any big names during the trade period ... like a Gormley?
They don't have a whole lot of future assets to be giving up without killing the team's future, and I'm not sure they really need to in order to win the cup anyways. I'd be happy to see him there though.
Any chance Connor Brickley follows Coyle to Saint John after the WJC's?
I heard that too...
Also, SJ is in the mix for Ellis or Gormley. One will go to Shawi thats for sure. Where the other one will end up.. Victo, Que or Hali are the only other 'serious' contenders.
With the addition of Coyle you have no need for Duffy. I'd put Halifax first on the list for him. Sackville kid, probs wants out of PEI (good for the rebuild) and could contribute this year and next (go for it year) ... But anything could happen.
I also believe if Gormley/Ellis goes to SJ, Cooper will be leaving, maybe Kelly too.
