Three members of the Sudbury Wolves are getting a little more hockey out of the season as they take part in the World Under-18 Championship, being held in Sochi, Russia April 18-28.

Nick Baptiste will join Team Canada for the international event. The Ottawa native earned his spot on Canada’s national team after a stellar season, finishing the regular season with 21 goals and 48 points in 66 games. In the playoffs, the skilled forward was tied for the team lead in goals with three goals in nine playoff games. Baptiste also captured the Most Underrated and Most Improved team awards.

Dominik Kubalik has been invited to join Team Czech Republic for the U-18 event. Kubalik had a solid finish to the season with 17 goals and 17 assists. In the playoffs, Kubalik scored three game-winners in the Brampton series. The winger was recently named as the team’s Most Sportsmanlike Player and was also the co-winner of the Wolves’ Playoff MVP award.

Dominik Kahun has once again been named to Team Germany. The skilled centreman is making his third trip to Russia in the last nine months. Kahun played for Team Germany in the World Jr. Championships at Christmas and finished his first OHL season with 40 points. Kahun was tied for second place in team scoring in the playoffs with six points in nine games and was named as the Top Rookie with the Wolves this season.
