Soo Thunderbirds graduate and current Soo Greyhounds star forward Boris Katchouk has made Team Canada’s roster for the upcoming World Junior Hockey Championship beginning on Boxing Day in Buffalo, New York.
This season, Katchouk currently leads the Soo Greyhounds in goals (27) and is second in team points (45).
For the past two seasons, the Kitchener, Ontario product has been the most dangerous penalty killer in the entire OHL.
Last season, the 19 year old led the entire OHL in shorthanded goals (7).
This season, he currently leads the OHL in shorthanded goals (4).
The Tampa Bay Lightning prospect currently has 12 career shorthanded goals and sits second on the Soo Greyhounds all-time career shorthanded goals list.
Katchouk, who will look to help Team Canada win its first gold medal since 2015, already has championship experience as he helped lead the Soo Thunderbirds to their third Copeland Cup McNamara Trophy title along with helping them win their second Dudley Hewitt Cup title during the 2014-2015 season.
