D-Day approaches for Beach

Hockey Canada announced it will reveal its list of invitees to its selection camp for the World Junior Hockey Championships tomorrow morning. That means Everett’s Kyle Beach will probably learn his fate before the team bus reaches the border (the Tips depart for Prince George first thing in the morning).

Beach has been in Hockey Canada’s doghouse for more than a year. However, he played well at the Canada-Russia Challenge last week, scoring the game-winning goal Thursday when Team WHL beat the Russia Selects 2-1. Reader (name removed upon request) forwarded this story, which mentions Beach.

Canada’s selection camp is Dec. 11-15 in Ottawa, so if Beach gets picked he’ll miss Everett’s final two games before the Christmas Break. If he then gets chosen for World Juniors, which are Dec. 26-Jan. 5 in Ottawa, he’ll miss at least another five games, and possibly an additional four should the Tips give him another week off.

In other news of the day, defenseman Trevor Bauer is iffy for this weekend. He still isn’t practicing because of his shoulder injury. Forward Ryan White is back practicing, but is still listed on the injury report as 1-2 weeks away because of his ankle injury. Defenseman Shayne Brown (hip flexor) remains listed as indefinite.

Also, prospet Brett Kolins skated with the team yesterday and today. The 16-year-old defenseman had a couple days off school, and since he’s based in Abbotsford just across the border, it was an easy enough trip.
