Silvertips notebook: Ronan Seeley named to Team Canada for U17 World Hockey Challenge

Silvertips rookie defenseman Ronan Seeley was one of 66 players that will represent Team Canada at the upcoming World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, Hockey Canada announced on Tuesday.

“I’m not surprised at all,” Everett Silvertips general manager Garry Davidson said. “I’m excited for him and I’m glad to see he was put on (one of) the teams.”

Canada will bring three separate teams — Team Canada Red, White and Black — to the eight-team event, which starts on Nov. 3 and ends on Nov. 10 in Saint John and Quispasmis, New Brunswick.

The Yellowknife, Northern Territories native was Everett’s first-round pick (No. 20 overall) in the 2017 Bantam Draft and boasts a pair of assists and +1 rating in six games played for Everett this season.

The 2002-born blueline was the MVP of the Telus Cup tournament, Canada’s national midget tournament, while leading the Lethbridge Hurricanes Midget AAA (AMHL) with seven points (two goals, five assists) in seven games. He also represented Team Alberta in the WHL Cup, compiling three points (one goal, two assists) in a silver medal showing.

Injury report

— Luke Ormsby was dealing with a nagging lower-body injury and was a scratch for the Silvertips’ last three contest, but Davidson said the 19-year-old forward made the trip to Brandon and he “would be surprised” if he wasn’t available for Friday’s tilt with the Wheat Kings.

— Bronson Sharp is week-to-week with an upper-body injury and did not , according to Silvertips general manager Garry Davidson. He left Saturday’s 7-2 win over Kamloops after being on the receiving end of an open-ice hit and was not in the lineup for Sunday’s 4-2 win at Portland.

He could rejoin the team later in the Eastern Conference road trip if his injury subsides, Davidson said.

—Backup goaltender Blake Lyda sustained an upper-body injury during the Silvertips’ morning skate on Friday before a 5-3 win over Edmonton and will be out two-to-three weeks, according to Davidson. Like Sharp, he didn’t make the trip up to Brandon with the team.

The Silvertips are recalling Danton Belluk from the Eastman Selects Midgets AAA to backup starting netminder Dustin Wolf. Belluk will join the team on Thursday and will be on the bench for Friday’s tilt with Brandon.

Belluk, a 10th-round bantam pick in 2016, posted a 6.03 goals allowed average and a .714 save percentage in two games last season.
