FORMER EAGLE NICO DAWES NAMED TO TEAM CANADA FOR WORLD JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS
The Burlington Eagles would like to congratulate Nico Daws on behalf of the entire Eagles Family.
Congratulations on being named to Team Canada for the upcoming World Junior Championships.
From the Staff of the Guelph Today.
The remarkable season of Nico Daws continued Thursday after he made Team Canada. Daws made the team over friend and summer training partner Hunter Jones, who was cut. That left Daws as one of the three remaining goaltenders. The team will take three goalies to the World Junior Hockey Championships in the Czech Republic that start Dec. 26.
Daws joins Joel Hofer of the Western Hockey League's Portland Winterhawks and Olivier Rodrigue of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's Moncton Wildcats on the team.
Hofer and Rodrigue are both NHL drafted, Daws was passed over in last year's draft and will reenter the draft in 2020.
Daws, 19, leads the Ontario Hockey League in goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts this season, his first as a starter.
Daws played his Minor Hockey with the Burlington Eagles before being drafted by the Guelph Storm in the 7th Round 122nd overall.
