Jarvis, Hunt, Greig Highlight World U-17 Roster

19 of the 66 players selected from the original 112-player group of hopefuls are from the Western Hockey League. Two of those players are Manitobans, while one is currently playing for Manitoba’s Brandon Wheat Kings. Seth Jarvis of Winnipeg, Daemon Hunt of Brandon, and Ridley Greig of the Wheat Kings will make their way to Saint John for their chance at winning Gold against international competition. 

Jarvis, 16, is currently beginning his first full season with Portland, where he already has posted three goals and six points in nine games for the Winterhawks. Hunt, also 16, is currently 17 games into his WHL career, having picked up two goals and seven points as a defenceman for the Moose Jaw Warriors. The Wheat Kings’ Greig has put up two goals and another two assists in eight games for Brandon thus far. 

The 2018 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge will see the 66 Canadians divided up onto three teams: Canada Black, Canada White and Canada Red. Their competition will include the United States, Russia, Sweden, Finland and the Czech Republic. The eight-day tournament will be held at the Q-Plex in Quispamsis and Harbour Station in Saint John.

Semifinals go on Friday, November 9th, while the gold and bronze medal games take place on Saturday, November 10th. Both Friday’s semifinals and Saturday’s finals will be televised on TSN.
