Challenge Cup Review

The Challenge Cup took place this past long weekend in Vancouver.  The tournament is the largest in western Canada over the summer and gives scouts a bit of a head start on the top prospects from around western Canada in terms of identifying the top talent.  This tournament definately had some suprises in the top grouping of 8 teams as the Jr. Blades, Jr. Flames and Vancouver Jr. Selects were perhaps the early favorites but a couple others teams wouldn't be denied.

The Vancouver Giants led by goaltender Nick McBride, defenseman Eric Lee and Ty Schultz and forwards Jansen Harkins, Brad Morrison and Glenn Gawdin won the final over the BC Jr. Heat.  Brad Morrison had 7 goals in his first 3 games to lead the way, while Gawdin was just behind with 2-5-7.  Nick McBride allowed just 8 goals in 3 games and had a 90.0% save percentage.  The Giants were very impressive in winning all 6 games played including 2 wins over the strong Calgary Jr. Flames by scores of 5-3 and 5-4.  They also had wins over the BC Jr. Heat both in the round robin and final.

The BC Jr. Heat who only had the losses to the Vancouver Giants in the tournament beat the Vancouver Selects in the semi's to reach the final.  They also had a shut-out victory 3-0 over the Jr. Flames in round robin play.  The Heat carry a pretty balanced attack led by a strong defensive core which is 6 deep led by Kevin Davis, Alex Winters and Alex Rasovic.  The offence is led by Chris Seto and Addison Bazien but both underwhelmed to an extent in the viewings where I personally caught them.  Granted though, the Heat do role all lines and players.
