BOUCHERVILLE, QC
 – The first-ever QMJHL American Draft was conducted this morning, and 36 young men each took another step toward playing in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Each team selected two U.S. junior-aged players coming from the Eastern states of either Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island or Vermont.

Ten United States native players had already been selected by QMJHL teams this past Saturday during the 2018 QMJHL Entry Draft in Shawinigan. This brings to 46 the total of American-born players drafted in the QMJHL this season.
