An exciting European summer trip is on the horizon for Jordan Biro, Cam Mitchell and Matthew Davis. The two forwards and goaltender have been selected to represent the AJHL at the Junior Club World Cup taking place August 23rd ? 31st in Sochi, Russia.
Pre-tournament preparation will take place August 16th ? 22nd in Moscow, Russia where players from 9 of the AJHL?s 15 teams will be represented.
?Playing in a tournament of this caliber against international opponents is such a rare and exciting opportunity for Jordan, Mitchy (Cam), and Matty.? Stated GM Rob Sklaruk.
?Being named to this team is a testament to the hardwork and dedication each player has put into their games. We are thrilled for each of them and excited to follow our players and the rest of the team as they represent the AJHL and Canada.? Sklaruk finished.
Saints head coach Bram Stephen expects that facing such stiff competition will spring board each player to have a big upcoming seasons for the Saints.
?All three of these guys are such important pieces to our group. To see them take part in such an elite international tournament is not only satisfying on a personal level for them, but also for our organization to be represented on the world stage. We feel this will push them to levels they have not reached yet which our group will benefit from when they return for our season.? Stephen continued.
?Traveling to Russia and playing in this world cup will be a memory that they will share together that will last a lifetime. We could not be more proud of Cam, Jordy, and Matty and wish them and the whole AJHL team the best of luck.?
The Saints organization wish Team AJHL good luck in their quest for gold!
