Chilliwack two skate with BC’s best

A pair of Chilliwack Minor Hockey products tested their skills at the U-16 BC Cup tournament in Salmon Arm.

A pair of Chilliwack natives competed in the Male U-16 BC Cup hockey tournament, held last weekend at the Shaw Centre in Salmon Arm.

Nikolas Sourtzis played for the Bruins. His crew went 2-2, starting off with a Thursday morning win over the Sabres.

Wearing No. 11, Sourtzis set up the first goal in the 4-1 triumph, scored by Kelowna’s Owen Hardy.

Sourtzis collected another assist in a 7-6 loss to the Stars, and tallied two goals and a helper in his team’s final game, a 7-4 win over the Flyers.

Meanwhile, Jesse Nelson skated at forward for the Penguins. His team went 2-2 with wins over Sourtzis’s Bruins (1-0) and the Wild (4-1).

Nelson was held pointless in the tournament.

The Stars claimed top spot with a 4-0 championship game victory over the Avalanche.

The Chilliwack two hope their performances will be enough to net them invites to a Team BC selection camp, running July 9-13 in Nanaimo.

Invites will be announced in the next two weeks.

Notable players who went through this process and on to bigger things include Brent Seabrook of the National League’s Chicago Blackhawks, Brandon McMillan of the Anaheim Ducks and  Brett Connolly  of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
