N.A. Juniors Game Night: 12/20

Team Canada Notes:
Canada called in Evander Kane, a BP favorite and teammate of Lightning prospect James Wright in Vancouver, to presumably take the spot of the injured Dana Tyrell. Tyrell suffered a "significant" knee injury Friday night in an exhibition game vs. Sweden and his tournament officially over.

Also, Canada coach Pat Quinn said the goaltenders' peformance Friday night did not sway him one way or another on a starter. Dustin Tokarski (0 GAA Friday) and Chet Pickard (2 GAA Friday) will go into today's game neck and neck.

BCHL

Courtnall goes into the Christmas break with a clear future (Boston University in the fall) and the Grizzlies scoring lead. He is 13th in league scoring. Powell’s Darcy Oakes, 31-38-69 in 39 games, is 19 points ahead of anyone else in the league. The 6-0, 175-pound Oakes is a 20 year old winger from Ontario.

USHL

Inclement weather in the upper-midwest forced the postponement of all USHL games.

The QMJHL, OHL, WHL are all off until December 27 for Christmas.

NA Juniors Game Night: 12/19

World Junior Championships (exhibition)
Canada 4 vs. Sweden 2
W Dana Tyrell, CAN: 0-0-0
G Dustin Tokarski, CAN: Win, 8 saves on 8 shots in half a game

I'll let the Canadian Press intro this:

> The biggest statement in the battle between John Tavares and Victor Hedman was made by Dana Tyrell.

While the rock-solid forward won't supplant either of those players as the top pick in next year's draft - Tyrell signed a three-year contract with Tampa Bay last week - he made the biggest impact on Friday night.

Literally.
