Victoria Grizzlies take on the high flying Coquitlam Express tonight at the Q Centre. This is a rematch of their recent meeting in Coquitlam where the Grizzlies were 6-3 victors and Captain Alex Newhook posted a 3 point evening.
Newhook leads the BCHL in scoring with 46 points while line-mate, Alex Campbell is tied for seventh with 37 points.
Campbell and Newhook will join Grizzlies teammates Riley Hughes, a 2018 NHL draft pick of the New York Rangers, and defencemen Carter Berger and Jeremie Bucheler at the Team Canada West selection camp beginning Monday in Calgary for the 2018 World Junior A Challenge next month in Bonnyville, Alta., which will also feature Team Canada East, Russia, Czech Republic and the U.S.
“The five of us bring different styles and aspects to the camp,” said Campbell.
“But it would be something truly special if they put us three Grizzlies forwards [Campbell, Newhook and Hughes] all on the same line.”
The five Grizzlies will depart for Calgary on Monday morning.
