Jost, Fabbro Shine at U-18’s + Vees Trade

Ivan Hlinka Website 

Canada-Switzerland Boxscore (Includes videos of all 9 Canadian goals)

Tyson Jost, Dante Fabbro and Team Canada wrapped up their round-robin schedule at the Under-18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup, with a convincing 9-2 win over the Swiss. Jost paced the attack, scoring three times as Canada clinched first place in Group A and a date in the Semi-Finals with Russia on Friday.

Tyson Jost’s hat-trick goal against the Swiss.

Not to be outdone, Dante Fabbro, who’s having a strong tournament himself, made this ridiculous pass in the game-mid STRIDE. He casually does the no-look-between-the-legs pass and it almost works.

 Tyler Niven Trade

Press Release

Switching gears, the Vees and Langley Rivermen swapped players yesterday afternoon. Coming to Penticton is 19-year-old defenseman Tyler Niven (pictured above), in exchange for 18-year-old forward Mitch Newsome. 

One of those trades that I think both teams will be very happy with as the deal seems to fill a need fro both organizations. The Vees were looking to add some depth on their blue-line and Niven is just the type of player they were looking for. Langley wanted to add some experience up front to a forward group that had a lot of turnover this off-season, including four of their five top scorers moving onto school.

Niven Captained the Varsity team at Governor’s Academy in Massachusetts last year and spent the past three seasons playing prep hockey at Governor’s. He’s considered to be a “well-rounded defenseman, who’s an exceptional skater.” I’m told he also plays with an edge and has the frame for it too (6’0 / 190). The Vees believe they got their man.
