Beach isn't holding his breath

Kyle Beach isn't holding his breath on playing for Canada at this years world junior hockey championships.

The Kelowna minor hockey product was not on the list of Western Hockey League players named to the roster for this months Subway Super Series against Team Russia.

Games featuring the two teams will be played in Victoria and Kelowna November 25th and 26th.

"An incident that got blown out of proportion at the Under 18's has me on the outside. I got into the Super Series last year and played really well, so I thought I would get a chance but didn't even get an invite to camp. It's disappointing, but hopefully I can play well over the next couple of weeks and maybe get an invite to the world junior camp."

Beach, a first round pick of the NHL's Chicago Black Hawks, has 14 points in 12 games with the Spokane Chiefs this season.

Kyle Beach doesn't deserve to be on this hockey Club anyways...

It would not surprise me if he never does have a regular role in the NHL. Teams don't want a player who's behaviour makes Sean Avery look "normal". It is unfortunate but he is just way too much of a risk and liability for any team especially one that represents our country.
