Conrad leads West

Colt Conrad of St. Alphonse kept his torrid production up, setting up two goals to help Team West earn its first win of the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, a 3-2 shootout decision over Sweden on Wednesday in North Sydney, N.S.

Conrad, whose rights are protected by the Western Hockey League’s Brandon Wheat Kings but is committed to Western Michigan University, is tied for fifth in tournament scoring with two goals and four assists in three games for Team West (1-2).

Connor Hobbs led West, a combined Manitoba/ Saskatchewan team, with a goal and an assist on Wednesday, while Logan Flodell made 38 saves in regulation and overtime before stopping both shootout attempts by Sweden, which has a regulation win and a 1-1 record in shootouts to show for its three games.

On Tuesday, Conrad had two assists in West’s 5-2 loss to the Czech Republic. Brandonite Tyson Verhelst made 13 saves in the loss.

West, which also includes forwards Jesse Gabrielle of the Wheat Kings and Meyer Nell of Boissevain along with defenceman Wyatt Kalynuk of Virden, needs a win in regulation in its preliminary-round finale against Quebec (1-1-1) today to get into the seventh-place game.

Meanwhile, Braylon Shmyr had his second assist of the tournament on Wednesday to help Team Pacific defeat the Czech Republic 4-1. Pacific (2-1), an Alberta/British Columbia team, can earn a spot in the championship game by beating Sweden today.
