World Selects – Pro Hockey Blue

Enters 15U Tournament With Experienced Roster of WSI Standouts
Pro Hockey has been a regular at the World Selects tournament series across all age groups, both boys and girls. They’ve competed in North American and European events, with headquarters in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and Sweden. Pro Hockey has won a World Selects Invitational three times — all at the 12U elite level by their North American branch — but will set its sights on the 15U tournament this May in Nashville.
Players like Ryan Roobroeck, Gavin McKenna and William Sharpe were a part of Pro Hockey’s last WSI championship, winning the 2019 tournament in Bolzano, Italy. Roobroeck is widely considered one of the top 2007-born prospects in Ontario, and actually led the 12U WSI in scoring that year with 15 goals and 22 points. McKenna is a potential candidate for the first overall selection in the upcoming WHL Bantam Draft, and is a dynamic forward who led the U18 Canadian Sports School Hockey League (CSSHL) in scoring with 23 goals and 65 points. Sharpe (8) were significant contributors during that championship run as well. Sharpe has the potential to be a high selection in the draft as well; he was a top producer from the back end this winter for Yale Hockey Academy’s U15 team, leading all CSSHL defensemen with 19 goals in 21 games.
McKenna and Sharpe are far from the only Western Canada prospects in the lineup for Pro Hockey, though. Cole Reschny, Reese Hamilton and Hudson Kibblewhite represent some of the best talent that Saskatchewan and British Columbia have to offer. The lineup is balanced, strong, and a serious contender for the 15U championship next month.
Pro Hockey has competed in the WSI on several occasions, bringing top-level talent to the tournament with names like Mitch Marner, Jakob Chychrun, Evan Bouchard and Shane Wright. This year’s lineup will certainly continue that trend in hopes of leaving the Music City as 15U world champions.
