Paquette to miss Ivan Hlinka tournament with injury

Canada was dealt another blow for the upcoming Ivan Hlinka Memorial on Wednesday, as it was announced defenceman Jacob Paquette won’t play in the tournament due to injury.

Josh Brook of the Moose Jaw Warriors will replace Paquette on Canada’s blue line.

The news comes one day after Windsor Spitfires forward Gabriel Vilardi, a projected first-round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, was left off the roster because of an injury.

Canada will be vying for its ninth-straight gold medal at the under-18 tournament when they open play against Slovakia on Monday. For the full roster click here.
