Two BC Players Named Alternate Captains of National Summer Under 18 Team
Wednesday, August 09, 2006

BC Hockey is pleased to announce that both Colton Gillies, of Surrey, and John Negrin, of West Vancouver, have been selected as alternate captains of the 2006 National Summer Under 18 Team.


They, along with Team Captain Angelo Espisito, of Montreal, and Assistant Captain Olivier Fortier, of Quebec City, will help lead the team at the 2006 Junior World Cup August 8-12 in Piestany, Slovakia and Breclav, Czech Republic.


This isn’t the first time Gilles has been handed a leading role. He was appointed captain of Team Pacific at the 2006 World Under 17 Challenge. Gillies is a forward who spent the 2005-2006 season (his rookie season) with the Saskatoon Blades of the WHL, registering 12 points.


Negrin is a defenseman and was also a member of Team Pacific in 2006. He picked up 10 points in 2005-2006 while skating with the Kootenay Ice of the WHL.


Thus far, the team has managed to win their first two games at the international competition.


Earlier today, Team Canada triumphed over Sweden 4-1. Kyle Turris (New Westminster, BC) tied the game in the first period after Sweden had taken a 1-0 lead. Brett Sonne (Maple Ridge, BC) scored the game-winner and only goal of the second stanza. Canada also picked up goals from Gilles Nick Ross (Lethbridge, AB) in the third.


On Tuesday, the team pulled out a 5-3 victory over Switzerland, with goals from Bryan Cameron (Brampton, ON), Espisito and Sonne in the opening frame. Cameron chipped in the game winner midway through the third and Espositio added an insurance goal less than 30 seconds later.
