USHL vs. QMJHL, Round 1

The CCM Junior Classic -- which is a two-day tournament pitting a pair of USHL games against two QMJHL teams -- started tonight in Quebec. In one game, the Omaha Lancers defeated the Quebec Remparts by a 3-2 score. St. Cloud State recruit Travis Novak had a goal and an assist, while Minnesota recruit Nico Sacchetti scored the first of the Lancers' three goals.

In the other game, the Rimouski Oceanic defeated the Indiana Ice by a 6-5 score in a shootout. UND recruit Brett Bruneteau has an assist, while Nebraska-Omaha recruit Jake Skjodt had three goals and an assist for Indiana.

The teams will trade dancing partners in tomorrow night's games, which will also be held in Quebec.
