Brandon Wheat King right-winger Jayce Hawryluk was held pointless on Wednesday as Canada improved to 3-0 in exhibition games at Hockey Canada’s national junior team development camp with a 6-3 win over Russia in Sherbrooke, Que.
Hawryluk played on a line with Greg Chase and Frédérik Gauthier and picked up a roughing penalty in the first period. Curtis Lazar led Canada with three goals and an assist, while Sam Bennett, Sam Reinhart and Nick Baptiste also found the back of the net. Nikita Cherepanov, Vladislav Gavrikov and Ivan Barbashev replied for the Russians.
Zachary Fucale and Tristan Jarry split time in net for Canada, with Fucale stopping 17 of the 19 shots he faced and Jarry making eight saves on nine shots.
Travis Sanheim of Elkhorn is also in Canada’s camp but didn’t play on Thursday. Canada returns to Montreal today to take on the Czech Republic.
