Bay Roberts’ Dawson Mercer has his sights set on making the NHL and his performance so far in the QMJHL has not disappointed. Mercer has scored 17 points (9G/8A) in just 11 games so far this season but Mercer’s star is about to rise again.

Mercer has been named to the QMJHL squad that will compete in the CIBC Canada Russia series.

The Canada Russia series allows the QMJHL to showcase the young talent within its ranks and of course, continue the Canada-Russia rivalry that has been around for decades.

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, with the Canadian Hockey League, the Saint John Sea Dogs, the Moncton Wildcats and Hockey Canada, have announced the roster which will compete against Team Russia as part of the 2019 CIBC Canada Russia Series.

The Sea Dogs will play host to game one of the series, which will be held in Saint John on Monday, November 4. The Wildcats will host the second game of the series on Tuesday, November 5. Following these two games, the Ontario Hockey League is set to host Games 3 and 4. The Western Hockey League will welcome the final games of the 2019 series

What makes it exciting for the respective leagues and players is that all six games will be nationally broadcasted on both Sportsnet and TVA Sports.

While some of the players have already been drafted to the NHL, fans across the country will get a glimpse of the 2020 Draft eligble players, including Dawson Mercer from Drummondville.

Mercer has been selected to represent the QMJHL. This is not Mercer’s first time representing a Canadian team. Mercer played in the world U17 challenge in 2017 and gained valuable experience on the international hockey scene.

Congratulations Dawson Mercer on your latest hockey accomplishment.
