The SUBWAY® Super Series features regional teams of CHL All-Stars competing against the Russian National Junior Team in a six-game event serving as an integral part of the identification process for Team Canada prior to the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship.

Last season the CHL prevailed with their eighth series win in nine years of this event earning a 10-8 victory in points which included three regulation wins, two losses, and one defeat by shootout. Team Canada later captured bronze at the 2012 World Junior Championship in Calgary and Edmonton, AB.
Team WHL will face Team Russia in games five and six of the series played Wednesday, November 14th in Vancouver, BC, and on Thursday, November 15th in Victoria, BC. The first two games of the series are hosted by the QMJHL with the OHL hosting games three and four.
