Bourke Sets Sights on Bronze Medal at U-18 World Championship.

With the 2012 NHL Entry Draft looming in June, Prince George Cougars forward Troy Bourke (Onoway, AB) is making a strong case for himself at the 2012 World Under-18 Championships taking place in the Czech Republic.

The Prince George Cougars leading scorer was one of the first confirmed names for Team Canada, and so far he has not disappointed. Through six games, Troy Bourke has recorded six assists and head coach Jesse Wallin has not been shy to use Bourke in all situations. Bourke has spent most of the tournament playing alongside two 2013 draft eligible players in Hunter Shinkaruk (Medicine Hat, WHL) and Kerby Rychel (Windsor, OHL).

Currently, Troy Bourke is ranked 123rd in the Central Scouting Bureau’s Spring rankings for North American skaters, but his strong showing at the World Under-18 championship is bound to help his cause come draft day.

Bourke and his teammates will square off with Finland on Sunday with the hopes of returning to Canada with a bronze medal. The game will shown live on TSN at 3:00 AM local time.
