World Women's U18s

In their first games of the tourney, both Team USA and Team Canada won big, with CAN defeating SUI 16-1 and USA defeating RUS 17-0.

For Canada, forward Breann Frykas had 1 G, 6 SOG and finished +1. Defenseman Saige Pacholok had 1 assist and finished +4. Here are the recaps: IIHF (link currently not working), hockeycanada

For the US, Forward Brianna Decker had 2G, 1A, 4 SOG and finished +5. Defenseman Alev Kelter had 1G, 2A, 4 SOG and finished +4. Forward Brittany Ammerman had 2G, 2A, 5 SOG and finished +6. Here are the recaps: IIHF (link currently not working), usahockey

You know, I had heard that Kelter would be on the roster, but she wasn't listed on the roster on the IIHF site (still isn't listed on roster, but she's listed on the stats page), and usahockey was delinquent in posting the roster on their site. So that's why I missed her the other day. Sorry, Alev!

Next up:
CAN v. FIN - Tues, Jan 6 @ 9:30 AM CST
USA v. GER - Tues, Jan 6 @ 1:00 PM CST

World U17s
Team USA won the bronze today by defeated Canada West 4-2. Michael Mersch had 1 assist. Frankie Simonelli was held off the scoresheet.

Congratulations Michael and Frankie!
