LaBarbera a coach for Canada Black
“We had some really good chances, especially shorthanded. O’Brien and (Josh) Curtis were making some stuff happen, some magic there and just didn’t finish it off. Our penalty-kill was fantastic (the Rockets went 0-for-5 on the power play). We didn’t give up many shots and our power play, once we got in the zone, was pretty good.”
LOOSE PUCKS: The World U-17 tournament starts Sunday, Nov. 5 in Dawson Creek with Team Canada White taking on Team Canada Black. The pre-tournament schedule gets underway on Thursday.
