SAULT STE. MARIE, O.N. – Tristen Nielsen and the rest of team Canada White are in for a tough battle if they want to retain the championship trophy at the World U17 Hockey Challenge.

The Fort St. John native, who has four goals in 3 games including a hat-trick against Canada Black on Sunday, will be playing tomorrow in the tournament quarter finals against Canada Red. Canada White went 1-and-2 in the preliminary round, winning against Canada Black 4-1, and droppiung to the United States 3-2 on Monday, and the Czech Republic 8-2 yesterday morning.

Interestingly, the team finds itself in a nearly ideantical situation to the one it was in after the prelims at last year’s U17s here in Fort St. John and Dawson Creek. Canada White beat Canada Black before dropping games to the U.S. and Czechs. They then went undefeated against Finland, Sweden, and Russia to take top spot in the tournament at the Encana Events Centre.
