Olympic hockey hopefuls hold valley connection


The 2018 Winter Olympics – to be held in PyeongChang, South Korea from Feb. 9-25 – are just a few short months away and two hockey players with close ties to the Valley are hoping to do what every athlete dreams of, but few actually achieve, as they work towards the final selections for Canadian men’s Olympic team.
Goaltender Barry Brust and defenceman Chay Genoway will lace up their skates from Dec. 13-17 to take part in the Channel One Cup, a three-game tournament in Moscow, Russia. The showcase will serve as the second-last evaluation tournament before the final Olympic roster is set.
