Soy continues strong play at Hlinka

Aug 12, 2014

Okanagan Hockey Academy alum Tyler Soy continues his strong play at the 2014 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament.

HC0_2059Soy.jpgSoy picked up another two assists in Canada’s 5-1 win over Sweden on Tuesday, giving the 17-year-old three assists in two games thus far.

The Victoria Royals forward assisted on back-to-back Mitchell Stephens goals in the third period to make it a 4-1 lead for Canada. Lawson Crouse, Jansen Harkins and Travis Konecny also tallied for the Canadians, who will look to close out the preliminary round with a perfect 3-0 record when they take on Slovakia on Wednesday at 8:30am PST.

Zachary Sawchenko made 27 saves in the Canadian crease as Canada outshot Sweden 41-28 in the game.

Last summer, Canada went 1-1-1 in the preliminary round before outscoring their opponents 7-1 in the knockout stage to win gold. OHA alum Joe Hicketts was an alternate captain on that squad.

Going to OHA was one of the greatest decisions I have made for my hockey career. OHA prepared me for the next level. Skating, strength, speed, conditioning. I wouldn't be the player and person that I am today if I hadn’t chosen OHA."
