Rielly Heading to Germany

Moose Jaw, SK.---  Hockey Canada has selected their team of players for the upcoming Under 18 World Hockey Championships in Germany.  The young men experience play on an international ice surface and are introduced to many elements of the international hockey experience.  The Warriors own Morgan Rielly has been named to the team of top young CHL players.  It is quite an accomplishment to be named to the team as a league rookie and 16 year old player.

Because the playoffs are still underway for many of the players in this age group, the team is comprised of players not involved in the playoffs in the Canadian Hockey League. Once they have moved through the Under-18 program, the National Junior Team is the next challenge that faces the players internationally. Over two thirds of the players who have starred at the World Juniors have donned the maple leaf for the National Men's Under-18 Team.
