The Canadian Hockey League in association with SUBWAY® restaurant chain and the Western Hockey League today announced that the WHL’s Victoria Royals and the Vancouver Giants will host the final two games of the 2012 SUBWAY® Super Series.

Victoria’s Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre, which hosted the event in 2009, will play host to Game 6 of the series on Thursday, November 15, 2012.

The 2012 SUBWAY® Super Series marks the tenth straight year that regional teams of CHL All-Stars will compete against the Russian National Junior Team as part of a six-game series.  The first two games of the series will be hosted by the QMJHL beginning November 5, 2012, followed by two games in the OHL, with the series wrapping up with two games in the WHL.  The SUBWAY® Super Series is an integral part of the identification process for Team Canada prior to the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship which will be played in Russia next season.

Last season the CHL edged Team Russia with a 3-2-1 record to win the series by a 10-8 margin in points, just one year following Russia’s first ever series victory in 2010.  Canada and Russia would later meet at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship hosted by Calgary and Edmonton, AB, with Russia winning the semi-final contest with a roster that included 16 players from this event.  19 CHL players from the 2011 event competed on the bronze medal winning Team Canada. 

All six games of the SUBWAY ® Super Series will be broadcast nationally on Sportsnet with TVA Sports televising both games from the QMJHL.

The 2012 SUBWAY® Super Series is supported by CHL associate sponsors, Bank of Montreal and CCM.
