 Fredericton, NB - The HNB Male Under-16 team took part in the QMJHL Challenge this past week in Boisbriand, Quebec. The event is a showcase for players in Quebec and the four Atlantic Provinces prior to the QMJHL Draft.
 
Team NB finished the round robin portion of the tournament with a 2-1-1 record. They had a 6-1 win over Newfoundland and a 9-4 win over PEI. They fell 6-1 to Quebec White, and lost in a shootout to Quebec Blue 4-3.
 
That record secured a berth in the Bronze medal game and a rematch against Quebec White. Team NB came out on top with a 5-1 win and took home the Bronze medal.
 
Head Coach Eric Bissonnette commented on the event stating: “ Since the beginning of this process a year ago, our team has demonstrated tremendous resiliency, work ethic and commitment and to finish on a high note as such with a big victory over team Quebec is simply the icing on the cake.  This is a big day for our Program of Excellence."
