Daily Dose of the Dub: U17 Quarterfinals Begin Thursday; Regina adds Walker; Everett hosts USA Hockey camp

 

U17 QFs set to begin

With the preliminary round of the World U17 Challenge over, the quarterfinal round will begin Thursday. Canada White is led by Kootenay ICE forward Connor McClennon and his tournament-high nine points, and will square off with Finland at 3:30 Eastern. Leading Canada Red is Portland Winterhawks forward Seth Jarvis, who potted the game-winner in overtime against Finland on Tuesday. Canada Red faces USA at 7:30, and will be joined with Canada Black versus Sweden on the late slate.

Regina acquires Walker from Everett

-Obviously looking ahead to next year when all three overage defensemen will be off their roster, the Regina Pats moved a fifth-round pick in the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft for 2000-born blue liner Kyle Walker.

Walker, a Leduc, Alberta native played in 50 games last year, compiling a goal and five assists for six points. This year, he has played in 14 games and has 10 shots on net.

Prior to Walker being traded, the Silvertips called up 16-year-old defenseman Dylan Anderson from the Yale Hockey Academy. With Anderson and recently acquired overage, import d-man Artyom Minulin, the Silvertips should now have seven d-men available. This is because Ronan Seeley is still away a the U17 Challenge.
