On the latest edition of The Hockey News on the 'Q', Jamie Tozer and Will MacLaren discuss what's been making news in the QMJHL over the past week, including:

- The Victoriaville Tigres, thanks to timely scoring and the remarkable work of Nathan Darveau between the pipes, have clawed their way to a tie for first in the Western Conference with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. Are we on the verge of a season-long battle between these cats and dogs?

- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar, led by QMJHL forward of the month Justin Gill, continue to hold onto top spot in the league as the calendar flips to November. It's arguably the best story to come out of the early part of the season. How are they doing it?

- Thirty-six QMJHLers have cracked the initial NHL Players to Watch list. Will and Jamie discuss who's there and who might be poised to rise through the ranks as the season progresses.

- The Detroit Red Wings are leaning more on 'Q' alumni in the NHL as they appear to be hitting their stride after years of rebuilding. Will Grand Rapids defenseman and league graduate Jared McIssac join the party soon?

- Will and Jamie take a moment to reflect and send best wishes to both the victims of last week's shooting in the former QMJHL city of Lewiston, Maine, as well as all affected by the tragic death of Adam Johnson.
