QMJHL adopts anti-discrimination policy

BOUCHERVILLE, Wednesday, December 13, 2006 - During the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Board of Governors meeting, which was held in Quebec City last Thursday, the Governors ratified an anti-discrimination policy. The policy is aimed at providing a sound working environment in which every individual is treated with respect and dignity. As such, the policy is applicable to all QMJHL and team staff, including officials, agents, officers, directors, managers, coaches, trainers and players, and to all members of the public who participate in any given QMJHL game, event or activity as a spectator or otherwise.

"The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League is committed to enforcing this zero tolerance policy to ensure a working environment without discrimination," declared the Commissioner, Gilles Courteau. "Each and every individual has fundamental rights that must be respected, and we aim to ensure that they are."

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League entirely subscribes to these fundamental values under which every person has a right to a full and equal recognition and exercise of his human rights and freedoms without distinction, exclusion or preference based on race, gender, color, religion, language, ethnic or national origin, sexual orientation, handicap or social condition.

Disciplinary sanctions are underlined in the policy to ensure it is followed.

The streak is over as the Moncton Wildcats beat Lewiston in a Shoot-Out

Lewiston, ME - As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, but it doesn't mean you have to like it. Salvaging a point in a 3-2 shoot-out loss to the Moncton Wildcats, the MAINEiacs 13 game winning streak officially ended tonight.

In the first period, Stefano Giliati put the MAINEiacs up 1-0 with a short-handed goal 7 minutes into the opening frame. Moncton's Chris Morehouse would score his 6th of the season with only 15 seconds remaining in the period to equal the score.

The second period saw the Wildcats take the lead as Matt Marquardt would tally his 23rd on the year. Down 2-1 in the third, the MAINEiacs played like it was game 7 of the playoffs carrying much of the play and winning battles. Their effort would pay off as Simon Courcelles would deflect a Kevin Marshall point shot to equal the score on the power play. The MAINEiacs kept the pressure on for the remainder of the period but the score would remain tied after 60 minutes.

5 Minutes of 4 on 4 overtime would not be enough to settle the game and thus the shoot-out would be needed to award the extra point.

After the first 4 shooters, neither team had found the back of the net and it was Moncton's Marc-Andre Labelle who finally turned on the red led and that would be enough as 5 shooters for Lewiston would be shut-out.

To rename the old streak, the MAINEiacs have not recorded at least 1 point in the last 14 games.

Final Shots on goal:

1 2 3 OT Total

Lewiston 10 10 15 3 38

Moncton 6 12 7 0 25

3 Stars:

1st Star Giliati (Lew)

2nd Star Sniderman (Mon)

3rd Star Marshall (Lew)

Attendance: 2,137

New forward added to Sea Dogs roster

SAINT JOHN, December 8, 2006 - Eighteen-year-old Payton Liske has been added to the Saint John Sea Dogs roster.

The six-foot-three 210-pound left wing was acquired as a free agent by the Sea Dogs from the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). Liske had three goals and seven assists to go along with ten penalty minutes in 22 games this season with the Greyhounds.

"I like his size," said Jacques Beaulieu, Sea Dogs interim general manager and head coach. "We're not a very big hockey team."

Beaulieu believes there's a lot of promise with his new acquisition. "I think Payton is a player whose potential is untapped. It's now the job of the coaching staff to exploit his talents."

Liske, from Fonthill, Ontario, was the Owen Sound Attack's first-round pick (12th overall) in the 2004 OHL entry draft. He was traded to Sault Ste. Marie in the 2005-06 off-season.

Liske is expected to be in the Sea Dogs lineup tonight when they meet the Moncton Wildcats at the Coliseum.

The Sea Dogs return to Harbour Station ice tomorrow night (Dec. 9) to host Patrick Roy's Quebec Remparts. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

MAINEiacs regain their winning ways with 6-3 win over Saint John

Lewiston, ME - The Lewiston MAINEiacs find themselves back in the win column with a 6-3 victory over the Saint John Sea Dogs. After rattling off 13 consecutive victories, the MAINEiacs had dropped their last 3 games and came into tonight's game ready to reverse the trend. In the first period, Marc-Andre Crete scored his first career goal with the help of Dave Taylor and Danick Paquette.

In the second, the MAINEiacs exploded with 5 unanswered goals to take a 6-0 lead after 40 minutes. Eric Castonguay scored his 10th on the season, followed by Christ Tutalo's 9th, scored with the man advantage. Marc-Andre Daneau recorded his 13th on the year short-handed on a goal that would chase Sea Dogs netminder Maxime Joyal from the game. Dave Taylor would notch his 4th on the year followed by Tutalo scoring his second of the game.

In the third period, the momentum would shift, as Saint John would reply with 3 unanswered goals of their own, but it would be to little too late. Scoring for the Sea Dogs was Schutz, Bergin and Liske.

Tonight mark Lewiston netminder Marc-Andre Perron's first game this year and he delivered a solid performance, good enough the night's second star.

In Lewy's Loot Shoot tonight, our contestant missed the open net from center ice, making Friday night's shot worth $800!

Final Shots on goal:

1 2 3 Tot

Lewiston 12 13 8 33

Saint John 8 15 14 37

3 Stars:

1st Star Tutalo (Lew)

2nd Star Perron, Marc-Andre (Lew)

3rd Star Taylor (Lew)

Attendance: 1,988
