When Hockey NL released the roster for the 2017 QMJHL Excellence Challenge later this month, Malcom Genge and Will Keating were a part of the 20-man squad.
As members of the team, they’ll travel to Blainville, Quebec April 27-30 where they’ll play teams from across the Atlantic provinces and the host province for the right to hoist the QMJHL Gold Cup.
Prospects will take part in on and off-ice combine testing a day prior to the competition starting.

Meanwhile, Corner Brook's Keating registered similar numbers with nine points (three goals, six assists) in 30 games with the Kings.
