One of the Saulnier twins will be suiting up for Team QMJHL next Monday at Harbour Station.
The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League announced this afternoon that Moncton Wildcats forward Alex Saulnier will replace Montreal Juniors forward Louis-Marc Aubry for Game One of the Subway Super Series.
From the Montreal Juniors blog Hockey Points:
Louis-Marc Aubry continues to nurse his knee which suffered a minor injury back in early October. Montreal won't rush him back into the lineup until the injury, which is believed to be a sprain, heals completely. Consider Aubry a "game day" decision to play against Quebec City in Montreal on November 5th.Alex Saulnier, who plays alongside his twin brother Allain in Wildtown, has registered seven goals and 20 assists in 20 games so far this season.

Some of you remember Kitsyn from the NHL draft. He was the one pictured (above) with the oddly shaped head.
