Hawryluk, Sanheim to suit up for Canada

  • Print

Two Manitobans made the final cut for Team Canada and will prepare to battle for World Under-18 Hockey Championship gold in Finland this week.

Among the 23 players on the team are Brandon Wheat Kings forward Jayce Hawryluk, from Roblin, and Calgary Hitmen defenceman Travis Sanheim, who hails from Elkhorn. Both are eligible for the NHL draft this year. Hawryluk is one of 13 players on the team who helped the summer under-18 squad win gold at the 2013 Ivan Hlinka tournament in the Czech Republic and Slovakia last summer.

Wheat Kings forward John Quenneville of Edmonton and defenceman Ryan Pilon of Duck Lake, Sask., were also named to the Canadian team.

In total, 12 WHL players, six OHL players and five QMJHL players made the final roster. The head coach for the tournament is former Florida Panthers bench boss Kevin Dineen, who coached the Team Canada women to Olympic gold. The under-18 world championship start today in Lappeenranta and Imatra, Finland, and run through April 27.
