McKENZIE — The World Juniors Hockey tournament is June 29 - July 4. The World Roller games are to take place July 6 - 13. The tournaments are at the Olympic facility in Barcelona. Two Bethel players are participating in the events.
Bethel Goalie Jimmy Teed will represent Team Canada in the Men’s Division while freshmen signed Defenseman Ryan Ro will represent Team Canada in the Jr’s Division.
Bethel Coach Ryne Potts commented on the players and events. “This is what hard work gets you. Being able to play and represent your country is an honor and these guys put in the work in order to do so. Jimmy Teed is well known around the league after he took over the D1 goalie spot last season for Bethel. As a goalie, being able to steal games for your team is a rare ability. Teed has the ability to put his team on his shoulders and carry them. I have seen this since day one since taking over as coach. He is the first on the rink and last to get off. All the hard work he puts in pays off in the end. I am excited to have one more season with him as a leader on this team along with being the top goalie in the NCRHA.”
He added, “Newly signed Ryan Ro is another example of what a good work ethic can bring to you. I have had Ryan visit Bethel for the last two years, three visits in total and every time he has come he has improved more and more. I am excited to see how he can handle pressure at the world roller games and definitely excited to add him to my d-core this next season.”
Potts summed up his thoughts by stating, “These are great accomplishments for both players. Being able to represent your country but to also represent Bethel is simply fantastic.”
