Team West closes U17s on winning note

Brandon Wheat Kings prospect Ryley Lindgren and Wawanesa native Jordan Thomson helped Team West end the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge on a winning note Thursday in Quebec.

Lindgren, a forward with the Midget AAA Winnipeg Thrashers, and Thomson, a rookie defenceman with the WHL’s Kamloops Blazers, both had assists to help Team West beat Slovakia 4-1 in the 9th-place game in the 10-team tournament. Wheat Kings centre Jayce Hawryluk (high ankle sprain) did not play for Team West, which also featured Yellowhead Midget AAA Chiefs defenceman Travis Sanheim and goaltender Ty Edmonds of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Virden Oil Capitals. Team West finished with one win, three losses and an overtime loss.

In other action, Wheat Kings prospect Jordan Papirny of the Edmonton SSAC Midget AAA Athletics, made 30 saves to help Team Pacific edge Ontario 7-6 in Thursday’s fifth-place game. Pacific, which also featured Wheat Kings centre John Quenneville, finished with a 4-1 record.

In other international action, Canada’s under-18 women’s team — featuring forwards Ashleigh Brykaliuk of Brandon and Cassidy Carels of Bruxelles and defenceman Halli Krzyzaniak of Neepawa, takes on Sweden this morning in the semifinals at the world women’s hockey championship in Finland. Canada posted a perfect 3-0 record in the preliminary round.

Meanwhile, at the world junior hockey championship in Ufa, Russia, Wheat Kings left-winger Alessio Bertaggia and Team Switzerland face the Czech Republic this morning in the fifth-place game. Bertaggia has two goals and two assists — along with a shootout goal — in five games.

On Thursday, former Wheat Kings centre Bruno Mraz had two shots but was held off the scoresheet for Slovakia in a 5-3 win over Latvia in relegation-round action. Mraz has one goal and one assist for the Slovaks, who face the Finns today in the relegation round to wrap up the tournament.
