Submitted By YSE on Sunday, April 8, 2018
Congratulations to YSE alumnus Cam Hillis who was named to Canada’s National Men’s Under-18 roster. Hillis, who finished second in OHL rookie scoring this past season with the Guelph Storm, will join the National U-18 team as they assemble in Etobicoke, Ont., next week before flying to Russia for two pre-tournament games leading up to the 2018 IIHF U18 World Championship, Apr. 19-29 in Chelyabinsk and Magnitogorsk, Russia.

On April 10 the team will depart for Russia to continue its training camp and play two pre-tournament games in Chelyabinsk – April 15 versus Slovakia and April 16 vs. Finland. 

Canada will look to reclaim gold for the first time since 2013, kicking off the tournament against its cross-border rival United States on Thursday, April 19 at 9:30 a.m. ET. 

Canada will also play against Belarus, Switzerland, and Sweden during the preliminary round. 

Canada has won seven medals at the IIHF U18 World Championship, including three gold (2003, 2008, 2013), one silver (2005), and three bronze (2012, 2014, 2015).
