As the process continues to move along, it’s clear that Dale Hunter likes Akil Thomas – and that began in the past Summer Showcase. Hunter continues to play Thomas on the 1st PP and PK unit – even gave him an opportunity to take a penalty shot. Thomas, Byfield and Tomasino did not get on the scoresheet, but that line was creating quality scoring chances all game.

Starting to think that Hunter is going to selected Thomas for Canada’s World Junior team – that would be quite the accomplishment. As Strohs mentioned, Thomas’ games as an IceDog are winding down quickly.

IceDogs got some national exposure on Sportsnet last night. The 1st period intermission featured a story on Phil Tomasino – and an interview with Akil Thomas.

Past camp start dates projects Canada to begin Tuesday, December 10, which means the game vs London on December 12 will be missing:

Niagara: Thomas and Tomasino
London: McMichael, Foudy, Merkley

In the past, did USA (Regula and Gruden) and SWISS (Sopa and Chanton) camps start a few days later?

I too am a big fan of Tomasino, but, I doubt very much that he will make that team as it is traditionally a 19 year old tourney. Hope that I am wrong here. Tomasino, I believe, will get his shot next year, as an Ice Dog.

That is 8 games and only 3 more home dates left for Akil Thomas. Tomasino is not getting traded this year - and as an 18 year old he likely gets returned early from world junior camp.

I did a quick check. Last year Sopa’s last game was Saturday, December
8th and Jason Robertson played Thursday, December 13th before leaving for camp.

Too bad. If the USA and Swiss camps were the reverse, it would make for a more competitive game vs London.

But who know maybe the USA will start earlier - since the tournament is overseas this year?

Not to be too too negative, but, we are going to get a spanking no matter which scenario occurs.
