The Buffalo Junior Sabres 12-Under Pee Wee team opened the 53rd Quebec International Tournament with a pair of exhibition triumphs Sunday, beating the Nashville Jr. Predators, 7-0, and Montreal Vipers, 3-2.

In the opener Zachary Rehbaum recorded three goals, while Joshua Graziano posted the shutout against a Nashville squad coached by ex-Buffalo Sabres forward J.P. Dumont. Later, Buffalo rallied from a 2-1 deficit in the final 3:33. Matthew Doyle snuck in from the point to pot a rebound chance for the tying goal. On the next shift, Joel Farabee scored the game-winner.
