Mooseheads forward Gabriel Desjardins did not make the cut for the under 18 squad for the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament. Neither did Brooks Macek of the tri-city Americans. Why does this selection committee hate the pretty?
Gabe had a single goal for the white team in the first scrimmage of the series plus an assist and a tripping penalty in the third game. Team white lost all four games to team red.
In happer news, four boys from the Q did make the team and one of those boys was the adorably fluffy/pouty/toothy Louis Boileau-Domingue of the Moncton Wildcats (and goaltender for team red). Quickly, tie him down while I shove 4 dozen cookies into his mouth. Don't worry - he has a week to digest them before the tournament.
