WHL Stomps Russian Selects in Saskatoon
Alternate Captain Justin Keller and Team WHL made Team Russia's trip through Canada even more unpleasant Wednesday night, crushing the Russian select squad 9-2. Russia is now 0-5 in the ADT Canada/Russia Challenge and must face the powerful WHL squad again tonight in Regina, Saskatchewan. Despite piling up 9 goals against the Russians, including 8 in the first two periods, the WHL received no scoring from Keller. Keller started the game on a line with Dustin Boyd and fellow Kelowna Rocket Blake Comeau. The line combined for no points and all three had even ratings. The WHL outshot the Russians 41-19 for the game.
Lightning prospects Blair Jones and Andy Rogers should be joining Keller on the WHL squad tonight. If so, it will be the first time since the Traverse City prospect tournament in September that the prospects suit up for the same club.
