Fadden/Tyrell to Play for WHL in Canada/Russia Challenge

The WHL has announced the WHL All-Stars roster that will participate in their two games in the Canada/Russia Challenge. Lightning prospect Mitch Fadden will participate in both games for the WHL while Dana Tyrell will participate in one game for the team. According to the press release, "Team WHL was selected by a special committee of WHL General Managers along with Al Murray, Hockey Canada’s Head Scout for the Canadian National Junior Team, as part of the selection process for the 2008 World Junior Hockey Championships." The Canada/Russia Challenge is an annual tour through the three Canadian junior leagues by a team of "select" Russian under-20 players. Because Russian Superleague clubs rarely release their best young players to play in the tournament, the Canadians have enjoyed an overwhelming advantage at this event. Last year the Canadian junior leagues went 6-0 in the Challenge.

D Dane Crowley, EVT: 1-0-1, +1, 4 PIM, *First Star*

Crowley scored his second of the season and was named First Star.
