Elkhorn native Travis Sanheim helped Canada beat Russia 5-2 to improve to 2-0 in exhibition games at Hockey Canada’s national junior team development camp in Sherbrooke, Que., on Wednesday.
Sanheim was on Canada’s third defensive pairing with Ben Harpur and was held without any points, though Harpur took a pair of minor penalties. Zach Nastasiuk, Bo Horvat, Robby Fabbri, Nick Ritchie and Madison Bowey scored for Canada, which netted four of its markers in the middle frame. Alexander Sharov and Rinat Valiev replied for Russia.
Philippe Desrosiers and Eric Comrie shared time in net for Canada, with Desrosiers stopping all 14 shots he faced, while Comrie made seven saves on his nine shots.
Brandon Wheat King forward Jayce Hawryluk is also in the camp, but didn’t play on Wednesday. Canada will take on Russia again tonight in Sherbrooke.
