The players, parents and staff all arrived safely in Quebec City on Thursday. Several of the players immediately went to a park after they arrived where they boys jumped into waist deep snow and of course had a snowball fight. Later that day the players departed for the Colisee to get checked in. The kids were in awe of the arena and quickly started trading pins and watched some of the tournament action and then took off to their billet homes.

On Friday morning the players met at one of the local rinks where Coach Dale ran the kids through their paces at practice. The team then went to the Colisee for the day where they mingled with players and siblings from other teams and caught some of the action as the Mexican team faced off against the team from Spain. That evening the team arrived at the rink which is located in the center of the Quebec shopping mall. As roller coaster cars ran by overhead, the players took the ice for their first exhibition game against the home town favorites from Quebec City.

The Blue Jackets immediately took control of the game pressing hard in the offensive zone. The team was quickly rewarded with a goal from Jordan Rose as he took a beautiful pass from Christopher Bergamesca and put the puck in the top corner of the net, putting the Jackets ahead 1-0. Quebec came back strong and drew a penalty minutes later which resulted in a penalty shot by the Quebec team. Goaltender Cameron Beck made a beautiful save the prevent Quebec from tying the game. Late in the first period, Quebec came back to tie the game.

The Blue Jackets played strong in the second period, fighting off two penalties. Mid-way through the second period, Austin Pooley crashed the net to score off of assists from Christopher Bergamesca and Chase Rose, putting the Blue Jackets up 2-1. In the third period the Quebec team took the ice looking to tie things up but to no avail. The Blue Jackets defenseman and goaltending held strong, frustrating the Quebec players as they tried to bring the puck to the net. The Blue Jackets defenseman and forwards' hard work paid off as they controlled the neutral zone for the second half of the third period, resulting in many turnovers and offensive opportunities for our boys. The Quebec goaltender played well but was unable to stave off the offensive pressure of the Blue Jackets. The Jackets pressure paid off late in the third period as Chase Rose scored low on the short side, with the assist from Mark Heneman, putting the Blue Jackets up by two goals. The game ended 3-1 in favor of the Blue Jackets.

The tournament begins in full swing Friday as the boys face off against team Switzerland at the Colisee in round one of tournament game action.
