Wright, James

N.A. Juniors Game Night 9/20: Jung on the Block

Tokarski gets his first shutout ... Courtnall with an OT winner ... and Torrie Jung appears done in Kelowna.

On the Wright Track to Better Things

James Wright's wake-up call came from NHL teams hitting the snooze button on him at their entry draft.

Wright, a Vancouver Giants centre, may be a pro-level skater already and that led to speculation that he could have been a second-rounder this past summer. That speculation, too, led to him attending the festivities in Ottawa with his family.

Wright, 18, has also had an up-and-down first two years with the Giants, thanks to an inconsistent battle level. NHL teams looked at that most of all, as he wasn't picked until the end of the fourth round by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
