Vancouver Jr. Canucks (Gold Medal)

The Vancouver Jr. Canucks captured the Gold Medal defeating the Prairie Lightning 7-2 in the final.  The Jr. Canucks finished a perfect 6-0-0 and outscored their opponents 43-9 in the process.  The Jr. Canucks were a big, strong team led by power forwards Shane Wright of Ontario, Camron Van Sickle of Alaska and Tyson Zimmer of Manitoba.  They played a heavy game, out-shooting most opponents by a 2-1 margin.  They had a very dangerous power-play, excellent goaltending and run a very short bench.  Lucas Di Chiara of New England, Lane Hutson of Chicago and Tristan Luneau of Quebec were good skating and puck moving defenseman.

Top players from this weekend for the Vancouver Jr. Canucks were primarily non-western Canada kids as outlined above but here are some of the WHL eligible players who performed well.
