Shmyr earns silver medal with Team Pacific at U17 Challenge

Brandon Wheat Kings forward Braylon Shmyr and Team Pacific settled for silver at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, falling 4-0 in the final to the United States on Saturday in Sydney, N.S.

The silver medal matches the best finish for Pacific, a team made up of players from Alberta and British Columbia, with the tournament set to shift formats next year, eliminating the five Canadian regional teams and replacing them with three national squads made up of players from across the country. The Americans went undefeated, winning the tournament for the fourth time.

Shmyr, a 16-year-old Calgary native, played six games in the tournament, picking up two assists. Team West, a Manitoba-Saskatchewan squad that featured Brandon’s Jesse Gabrielle, Wheat Kings prospect Colt Conrad of St. Alphonse and Meyer Nell of Boissevain up front, along with defenceman Wyatt Kalynuk and Brandonite Tyson Verhelst in net, wrapped up its run on Friday, finishing the 10-team event in ninth place.
