Dirven and Team Canda East to skate for gold

sean Dec 16, 2016 - 3:04pm

Colts stars Nick Lalonde and Sebastian Dirven (from Bainsville) could be in your living room this Saturday night, as Team Canada East plays the United States in the Gold Medal game at the World Jr.A Challenge.

The game will be televised live from Bonnyville, Alberta on TSN 1 and TSN 3 Saturday night, starting at 7pm (Eastern Standard Time).

The US best Team Canada East 3-1 in round-robin play on Tuesday. Lalonde assisted on the lone Canada East goal. Canada East beat the Czech Republic 2-1 in overtime to advance to the Gold Medal game. The United States doubled Russia 4-2 to stamp their ticket to the final game.

Lalonde and Dirven have been out of the Colts line-up for the past two weeks since earning their roster spots on Team Canada East earlier this month. Both players will return to Cornwall next week.
