Chilliwack Bantam Tournament Semi - Finals
OHA 5- BWC 4 FINAL OHA heads to the tournament final later today.
NSWC 1 - POE 0 End 1st
Some quick notes so far from the tournament, much more later....Langley star '99 born defenseman Alec Capstick suffered a separated shoulder and will be out 6 weeks. It was in the game which Langley led 7-3 after 2 periods against NSWC, only to lose 9-8 in overtime in what was a thrilling display of talent.....Jake Kryski and Jaeger White as expected have been tremendous. In fact many are starting to talk about Kryski as a possible top 10 player for the up coming draft. Some news or rumblings around the tournament is that one of the top defenseman in western Canada - Dante Fabbro is considering the BCHL route, followed by College. We likely won't know anything concrete this season though and it may force a situation where he gets drafted by a B.C. squad and not come out east. Kyle Uy, Owen Seidel and Ken Kylyshbeck were very average as secondary scorers on BWC.....The Vancouver Thunderbirds got a couple great performances by hard hitting dman Paul Georgeopoulos. In fact, the BWC team were trying to keep Kryski/White line away from them.....Jordan Deyrmenjian for the Thunderbirds continues to improve at a rapid rate and could climb the rankings fast this year.....Dennis Cholowski, the smallish 5'7 D/F for Langley had his moments and definitely has high end skill. However, it fails to want to enter the corners and lay it on the line. Luke Gingras of Langley is a big forward who is noticable in all areas of the ice and was very dominant at times....'99 born goalie Jordan Hollett continues to prove he is the real deal....Abbotsford Hawks had their moments in the tournament and easily could've beat the BWC Bruins but the BWC PP was too good and that is where they will feast this season......more later....
