Thomas Hickey will keep wearing the 'C'.

The Calgary product, who is the Seattle Thunderbirds' captain, has been chosen for the same role with Team WHL.

The Los Angeles Kings blueline prospect will be the captain when Team WHL takes on Team Russia tomorrow in Swift Current and Thursday in Prince Albert.

Airdrie's Zach Boychuk (Lethbridge Hurricanes), Tyler Ennis (Medicine Hat Tigers) and Dana Tyrell (Prince George Cougars) will be the alternates.

Both games will be shown on Rogers Sportsnet.

BLUM PLUMB GOOD

Jon Blum is in rare company.

Vancouver Giants bench boss Don Hay has coached his fair share of all-star rearguards, and the Giants captain, who has 11 goals and 30 points this season, is among them.

"People like Scott Niedermeyer and Darryl Sydor are right there ... Jon is right there, too," Hay told the Kamloops Daily News. "They're all really intelligent and competitive."

The Giants have lost just once in regulation in 24 games (20-1-0-3).
