Sting rookie for play for Canada at the Under-17 Challenge

A Sarnia Sting rookie will represent Canada at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge next month.

Forward Jacob Perreault was named to the 66-player roster last week and will suit up for one of three Canadian teams in the tournament, which runs Nov. 3-10 in St. John and Quispamsis, N.B.

Perreault got off to a quick start in his rookie OHL season scoring five goals and adding two assists in his first nine games.

The competition features teams from the Czech Republic, Finland, Russia, Sweden and the U.S.
