Strome named to Team Canada for 2012 Canada-Russia Challenge

Hockey Canada announced Monday that Islanders prospect Ryan Strome has been named to Team Canada’s 28-man roster for the 2012 Canada-Russia Challenge which is taking place August 9-14 in Yaroslavl, Russia and Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Strome, the Islanders first-round selection (fifth overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft, scored 68 points (30 goals, 38 assists) in 46 games last season for his junior club, the Niagara Ice Dogs. In 172 career Ontario Hockey League games, Strome has tallied 201 points (70 goals, 130 assists). The 6’0”, 183-pound center also posted 23 points (seven goals, 16 assists) in 20 postseason contests in 2011-12, helping Niagara to the OHL Finals.

Of the 28 players on Canada’s roster, 12 were drafted by NHL clubs in 2011, while the other 16 players are eligible for the 2012 NHL Draft. The roster is broken down into 15 forwards, 10 defensemen and three goaltenders. Kitchener Rangers Head Coach Steve Spott leads this year’s team.

The four-game tournament begins in Russia on Aug. 9 and 10 with two games at Yaroslavl’s Arena 2000. The teams will finish the exhibition in Canada, playing on Aug. 13 and 14 at the Halifax Metro Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The showcase will provide many Hockey Canada executives a chance to evaluate players before naming a squad to compete at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia.
