Two Manitobans joining Team Canada West

  • Print

Two Manitoba-born players have again been included in the selection of Team Canada West's roster for the World Junior A Challenge next month in Yarmouth, N.S.

Defenceman Paul Stoykewych and forward Kurt Keats, both of Winnipeg, have been selected to the team comprised of players from the BCHL, AJHL and SJHL. Players from the MJHL and SIJHL also attended the selection camp but none were chosen.

Both Stoykewych and Keats played in last year's tournament -- the only two Manitobans on the team -- which won a silver medal after losing the tournament final to the U.S.

Stoykewych, 18, is a member of the BCHL's Penticiton Vees this season and has two goals and seven points in 15 games so far. He's a former member of the Winnipeg Blues. Stoykewych has also committed to the NCAA Western Michigan Broncos.

Keats, 18, also moved this season from the Blues to the BCHL to play for the Powell River Kings. He has five goals and 20 points in 15 games this season.

Team Canada West will be coached by Alberta's Jason McKee. Selkirk Steelers head coach Ryan Smith will be one of McKee's assistants.
