I wish to congratulate the Soo Greyhounds’ own Darnell Nurse and Sergey Tolchinsky who will be returning to the Sault following the World Juniors gold medal game. Bringing home the gold with Team Canada, Nurse was honoured as Canada’s player of the game. Tolchinsky, playing for Team Russia, scored one of Russia’s 4 goals in the 5-4 game and will bring home a silver medal. Also returning to the Soo Greyhounds following the World Juniors, Brandon Halverson played hard for Team USA until they were defeated by Russia in the quarter finals.
These players, and especially Team Canada, have made Saultites and all Canadians proud – a very well earned and deserved victory by the entire team. On behalf of Sault Ste. Marie and the Government of Canada – congratulations!
