There are plenty of top-calibre players from Calgary and the surrounding area suiting up for Team Pacific at the U-17 World Hockey Challenge, Dec. 28-Jan. 4 in Lethbridge.

Four members of the Calgary Hitmen will play: Goalie Daniel Spence and defenceman Karl Alzner with Pacific and forwards Ryan White and Keegan Dansereau for Team Westerny.

Cochrane's Mike Cann (Brandon Wheat Kings), Jordan Baker (AJHL's Olds Grizzlies) and Tyler Swystun (AJHL's Camrose Kodiaks), plus Calgary's Keaton Ellerby (Kamloops Blazers), are also competing.

Cochrane's Trevor Glass, a blueliner with the Medicine Hat Tigers, suffered a concussion Friday night in a game against Lethbridge and his status is uncertain.

"I'm going to see a specialist in a couple of days and he'll decide if I can play," said Glass, 16.

COUGAR SUSPENDED: Dan Gendur, a rookie with the Prince George Cougars, has been suspended indefinitely by the WHL.

Gendur, who has 34 PIM on the season, is in trouble following his hit on Kamloops Blazers defenceman Kalvin Sagert Friday.

In the first period, Sagert dumped the puck into the Cougars zone and Gendur caught Sagert with what looked like a legal hit.

No penalty was called on the play by referee Andrew Guest. Sagert hit his head against the boards and hurt his neck.
