Five Quebec born players are representing Team Canada at the IIHF World Junior tournament in Ufa, Russia this year. The QMJHL (the 'Q') has six players represented - the five mentioned plus one player born in Halifax.

It's true Quebec representation has come off in recent years. This had a lot to do with the simple fact we haven't produced the talent Team Canada was looking for. It doesn't help that Quebec doesn't dominate the goaltending position like it once did in the 1990s into the 2000s. The Patrick Roy effect has diminished I reckon.

But these things go in cycles. Quebec is bound to bounce back. And it did this year.

Funny how vagabond nationalist sportswriters in the province kep their lousy traps shut on this. At least we're spared the "Ottawa is against Quebec" conspiracy for one year.
