October 27, 2015

SARNIA, ON – Following a request from USA Hockey, the Sarnia Sting Hockey Club has granted rookie forward, Sasha Chmelevski permission to join Team USA for the 2015 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. The Tournament is being held in Dawson Creek/ Fort St. John, British Columbia from November 1 – 7, 2015.

Selected 10th overall in the off-season, Chmelevski has had a strong start to his Ontario Hockey League career. The centreman is currently tied for 3rd in rookie scoring after registering 5 goals through his first 12 games played. 

In terms of representing his country, this is not a first for the 16 year-old. This past summer, Chmelevski captained the USA Under-17 team to a gold medal finish at the Five Nations cup in Arosa, Switzerland. In four games played, Chmelevski notched 4 goals and 6 assists for a total of 10 points. 

General Manager, Nick Sinclair comments on today’s news, “We’d like to wish Sasha the best of luck with Team USA next week. The U17 tournament is a great opportunity for him to showcase his talents on an international platform, and represent his country once again.”
