Quebec Juniors to Test For Substances

With thanks to "Punkette" a member on the Pittsburgh Penguins message board, she translated an article on RDS (an ESPN-type French Network)
The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) will become the only junior league in Canada to use a drug program which will be implemented next season.

The league still has to produce a list of illegal substances but said it will follow the Olympic International committee as soon as they go public with theirs list.

Players will have to submit to random tests which will help to prevent this problem.

1st infraction: 5-10 games
2nd : 25 games
3rd : 2 years

The suspensions will have their causes published in public.
