Softball Canada Release
The Canadian U17 Junior Men’s National Team registered its first win by defeating Guatemala 3-1 at the Pan American Softball Championship. Canada opened the scoring with a run in the top of the third and held Guatemala to one hit until they tied the game in the fifth, but the red and white got a key go-ahead double in the sixth and added an insurance run in the seventh to earn the victory.
Ryan Bicknell (Prince Albert, Sask.) led off the game with a double down the third base line for Canada and he advanced to third on a one-out single by Connor Brooks (Napanee, Ont.), but a pair of ground outs left both runners stranded. After a two-out single by starting pitcher Andrew Van Boekel (Bright, Ont.) didn’t go any further in the second, Canada was able to open the scoring in the third when Owen Rahn (Durham, Ont.) reached on a fielder’s choice, moved up to second on a wild pitch, to third on a passed ball and crossed the plate on another wild pitch. Meanwhile, Van Boekel allowed only a two-out single in the third over the first four innings as Canada held a 1-0 lead.
In the bottom of the fifth, Guatemala got a one-out walk before their pitcher Juan Diego Morales pinch hit for the designated player and lined a double over the second baseman to score the runner from first, knotting the score at 1-1 and leading to a pitching change as Reese Yantzi (Shakespeare, Ont.) entered the circle in relief. The next batter singled to put runners on the corners, but Yantzi induced a pair of ground outs to keep the game tied.
In the sixth, Max Major (Delisle, Sask.) earned a one-out walk and was replaced on the bases by Xavier Daneau (St-Celestin, Que.), who moved ahead to second on a pitch in the dirt before scoring on a deep double to left-center by Mason McKay (Tavistock, Ont.) as Canada regained the lead at 2-1. Canada added an insurance run in the top of the seventh when Yantzi beat out a throw from the third baseman for an infield single, moved up to second on a fielder’s choice and to third when the third baseman’s throw to second went into right field, and crossed the plate on a single up the middle by Jackson Pegelo (Cargill, Ont.). Yantzi retired Guatemala in order in the bottom of the seventh to seal the win.
Van Boekel pitched four and a third solid innings for Canada, allowing one run on two hits and two walks, striking out seven batters. Yantzi earned the win after entering the game with the game tied, allowing only one hit and striking out two in two innings and two thirds. Van Boekel also led Canada at the plate, hitting a double and a single. McKay had the key go-ahead RBI double, Bicknell also doubled with Pegelo adding a run-scoring single and Yantzi and Brooks each chipping in with a single.
Canada evened its record to 1-1 and will have a short turnaround with a game against first-place Mexico (3-0) at 2:00pm CST (3:00pm EST) on Tuesday. Mexico improved to 3-0 by coming back from a 6-4 deficit to score three runs in the bottom of the seventh for a 7-6 walk-off win over the United States (1-1) prior to Canada’s game against Guatemala (2-1). Argentina currently sits at 1-1, with Belize and Panama both at 0-2.
CIBC Canada-Russia Series

Team Russia 4 Quebec Stars 3
Game 2 in the series is tonight at Moncton
Game 3 in the 6 game Russian Tour is Thursday against the Ontario Hockey League All Stars at Kitchener
Aidan Dudas of Owen Sound Attack is the captain for the OHL entry
Team Russia came away in the winning ledger in Game 1 of the 2019 CIBC Canada Russia Series, downing Team QMJHL by a 4-3 score.
While Team QMJHL ended the night on the wrong end of the scoreboard, it was one of the league’s own talents in Moncton Wildcats forward Alexander Khovanov who factored in on all four goals to cap the comeback for the Russians.
“We forechecked hard, we hit hard, but we made a couple big mistakes at the end that cost us the game and that’s the way it goes sometimes,” said Team QMJHL head coach Dale Hunter following the hard-battled defeat. “We’ll try to correct a few things. They exposed us in the middle of the ice and in front of the net a couple of times. We definitely have to figure it out and just have the same energy tomorrow.”
A Minnesota Wild prospect, Khovanov got the night started midway through the first frame after fooling Team QMJHL netminder Alexis Gravel of the Halifax Mooseheads with a fake shot before sliding across and tucking it home to give his side the 1-0 lead.
The Russians carried that edge into the initial intermission before trailing 3-1 in a scoring-packing second period in which Team QMJHL lit the lamp three times, beginning with Baie-Comeau Drakkar forward and Tampa Bay Lightning prospect Gabriel Fortier who put his blazing speed on display before wiring the puck past Russian netminder Daniil Isayev.
Team QMJHL then grabbed the lead following a pretty passing sequence between Wildcats forward and Calgary Flames first-round pick Jakob Pelletier who made a perfect set up to 2020 NHL Draft hopeful Dawson Mercer of the Drummondville Voltigeurs.
Not yet finished, Team QMJHL then added another goal after Mooseheads forward and Edmonton Oilers prospect Raphael Lavoie circled the cage and poked a loose puck home to gain the 3-1 lead.
Team Russia, however, entered the second intermission on a high note after Rimouski Oceanic forward and Flames prospect Dmitry Zavgorodniy accepted a no-look pass from Khovanov before burying it by Gravel with just five seconds remaining in the second period.
Khovanov’s heroics were again on display in the final frame as the captain first knotted the score thanks to an in-close one-timer that drew assists from Zavgorodniy and Cape Breton Eagles forward Egor Sokolov. Just over eight minutes later, Khovanov and Zavgorodniy reconnected after the former created a turnover before putting a puck on net that found the back of the cage following a deflection by Zavgorodniy.
While Russia came out on the wining side, there will be little time for celebration however as the two sides are back in action Tuesday in Moncton for Game 2 of the 2019 CIBC Canada Russia Series.
McMichael OHL Player of the Week
The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Washington Capitals prospect Connor McMichael of the London Knights is the OHL 'On the Run' Player of the Week with eight points including four goals and four assists over two weekend contests.
McMichael earns the award for the second time this season, helping the Knights win back-to-back games to give them victories in five of their past six. The 6-foot, 181Ib. centre registered a career-high six points, scoring the overtime winner in Friday's 7-6 win over the visiting Erie Otters. With the game tied 4-4, McMichael scored late in the second period before tying things up with 1:05 remaining in regulation. He capped-off his hat-trick with 1:56 remaining in overtime, becoming the first Knights player to record six points in a game since Robert Thomas on October 27, 2017.
McMichael continued his strong weekend with a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-1 road win over the Oshawa Generals, earning second star honours while extending his run of consecutive multi-point performances to six.
An 18-year-old native of Ajax, Ont., McMichael sits second in OHL scoring with 34 points (17-17--34) over 14 games, with 19 of those points coming over his past six outings. The former 11th overall pick in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection has split his three-year OHL career between London and Hamilton, recording 61 goals, 61 assists and 122 points over 141 regular season games. He was Washington's first round (25th overall) pick in the 2019 NHL Draft.
McMichael will represent Team OHL in this week's CIBC Canada Russia Series.
Also considered for the award this week were Hamilton Bulldogs teammates Arthur Kaliyev and Jan Jenik who each posted four goals, four assists and eight points over three games as the Bulldogs played to a 2-1 record.

Hockey Canada Release
Danny Zhilkin (Mississauga, Ont./Guelph, OHL) scored a pair of goals, including the game-tying marker with just 1:18 to go, and Brandt Clarke (Ottawa, Ont./Barrie, OHL) finished it in Round 5 of the shootout to give Canada Black a 5-4 extra-time win over the Czech Republic on Monday afternoon at the 2019 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.
Black erased a trio of one-goal deficits to force overtime, and withstood a spectacular 34-save effort from Tomas Suchanek to remain unbeaten in Group A.
After Shane Wright (Burlington, Ont./Kingston, OHL) and Zach Dean (Mount Pearl, N.L./Gatineau, QMJHL) had answered goals from Martin Rysavy and Jakub Altrichter in the first three rounds of the shootout, and with the game on his stick, Clarke put a low shot off the post and in past Suchanek to seal the win.
The Czechs came out looking like a different team than the one that had allowed 10 goals to the United States less than 24 hours earlier, taking a lead to the dressing room after 20 minutes.
James Malatesta (Kirkland, Que./Quebec, QMJHL) opened the scoring for the Canadians just shy of the 15-minute mark, finishing a feed from Ryan Winterton, but Michal Ramik and Rysavy buried rebounds past Black goaltender William Blackburn (Jonquière, Que./Jonquière, LHMAAAQ) in a span of 1:44 to put the Czechs up 2-1 after one.
Zhilkin got his first to tie the game midway through the second period, sneaking a shot past a screened Suchanek, only for Petr Moravec to beat Blackburn with a wrist shot from the point 24 seconds later to restore the Czech advantage.
Max McCue (Sudbury, Ont./London, OHL) equalized for Black six minutes into the third period when he crashed the net and cleaned up a Clarke rebound, but Matous Mensik took advantage of hard work behind the net by Gabriel Szturc to put the Europeans back up 4-3 with less than nine minutes left.
With Blackburn on the bench and time running out on the Canadians, Suchanek absolutely robbed Brennan Othmann (Pickering, Ont./Flint, OHL) at the side of the net. Othmann stayed with the puck and threw it in front for Zhilkin, who batted in the tying goal as he was being knocked to the ice.
Suchanek was the busier goaltender in an end-to-end overtime, turning aside five shots.
Canada Black looks to complete an unblemished preliminary round on Tuesday afternoon (3 p.m. MT) against the United States, right before the Czechs close out Group A play against Canada White (7 p.m. MT).
