2019 QMJHL Draft goes Saturday in Quebec

The QMJHL Draft takes place this weekend in Quebec City and the Acadie-Bathurst Titan says the event is an important step in its rebuilding process.

The Titan holds two first-round picks for the fifth time in franchise history and is also expected to make the 11th overall selection, a position the club has held twice before.

The Acadie-Nouvelle reports several transactions are expected on Friday ahead of Saturday's draft and that the Titan may use some of its defensemen as bargaining chips to increase their number of picks or improve their position for the top five selections.

Saint John Sea Dogs will have first pick.
