MONTREAL, JANUARY 5, 2009- The English Montreal School Board (EMSB) will continue its program with the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s Montreal Juniors as the team reaches out specifically to high school students.
In November hundreds of students from Royal Vale School and Westmount High School were in attendance for games against Val d’Or and Acadie Bathurst. Marymount Academy in N.D.G. is on the schedule for Wednesday, February 11 against Victoriaville; John Paul I Junior High School in St. Léonard for Sunday, February 15 against Gatineau; and LaurenHill Academy in St. Laurent for Friday, February 27 against Drummondville.
Goaltender Jake Allen and forwards Angelo Esposito, Luc Adam and Matthew Brenton have already visited EMSB schools where they played some floor hockey and signed autographs. Allen, Esposito and Adam have all been drafted by NHL teams.
Home games for the Juniors are played at the Verdun Auditorium, only a block away from the De L’Église Metro Station.
