Ashton hopes to ride Subway to WJHC

(Saskatoon StarPhoenix) During the next week, [Lightning 2009 first rounder] Carter Ashton will tote his Lethbridge Hurricanes hockey bag through three provinces for four games.

He'll tangle with familiar WHL foes in Saskatoon, Prince Albert and Medicine Hat. But first, the 18-year-old winger has a Thursday date with the Russians in Kelowna, B.C.

"A lot of people will be watching that game," says Ashton, who'll represent Team WHL in the finale of the Subway Super Series. "It's another step towards the process (of earning an invitation to the national junior team's selection camp)."
