Flyers’ prospects faring well at World Junior evaluation camp
Philadelphia Flyers prospects Travis Konecny and Nicolas Aube-Kubel put their best foot forward as Canada claimed a 7-1 victory over the Czech Republic on Tuesday at the World Junior Championship evaluation camp in Calgary, Alberta.
The 24th overall pick of the 2015 draft, Konecny recorded the first of his three assists by setting up Brayden Point for the first goal of the contest at 13:14 of the first period.
Aube-Kubel, who was Philadelphia’s second-round selection in the 2014 draft, added a pair of assists in the lopsided victory.
Defenseman Travis Sanheim, who was a first-round pick in the 2014 draft, was held off the scoresheet for Canada.
Canada looks to defend its title in the 2016 World Junior Championship, which will be held in Helsinki, Finland, from Dec. 26-Jan. 5.
