Looking ahead--UPDATED

2010 recruit Adam Clendening spoke with the Buffalo News about participating in the World U18 Championships and some of his goals when he suits up at Boston University next season.

Clendening racked up four assists in Team USA's exhibition game win over Belarus. But Team USA got off to a rocky start in the preliminary round, losing to Sweden, 4-2, yesterday. Fellow 2010 recruit Matt Nieto assisted on Team USA's first goal. Next up is Switzerland today. Both Nieto and Clendening played for the American squad that won the gold medal at last year's U18 title in Fargo.

  • UPDATE-Clendening scored a goal and assisted on two others to lead the U.S. past Switzerland, 5-1, on the second day of preliminary round play.
2010 recruit Sahir Gill scored the game-winner for the Vernon Vipers in their 2-1 win over Powell River in the seventh game of the BCHL Fred Page Cup playoffs. The Vipers, seeking to return to the RBC Cup Championships, which they won last year, next take on the AJHL champions, Spruce Grove.

Vipers Coach Mark Ferner discussed the return of Gill to the team in January after spending the first half of the season in the USHL:
"People questioned me bringing Sahir Gill back after he went
to Chicago. I was happy for him that he came back and scored
the game-winner in Game 7. He’s a great kid and a great player
and we welcomed him back with open arms. When we put him
back with the Jones’ twins, they caught fire.”
Gill has scored 15 points in 19 post-season games.
