College Hockey:
BC’s Kolanos Cut from Team Canada

Heatley, Cammalleri Make the Team

— Two U.S. college players will be part of the Canadian entry at the World Junior Championships this year, but Boston College’s Krys Kolanos won’t be one of them.

Kolanos was one of four players who missed the final cut, as the team pared down what was originally 34 players to 22. This year’s World Junior Championships will take place in Moscow, Dec. 26-Jan. 5.

Two other college players, Michigan’s Mike Cammalleri and Wisconsin’s Dany Heatley, made the final cut. Heatley, the No. 2 pick by Atlanta in the 2000 NHL Draft, has 26 points in 20 games. Cammalleri has 28 points in 19 games.

Kolanos, 19, the first-round pick by Phoenix (19th overall) in the 2000 NHL Draft, has 12 goals and 28 points in 15 games, and leads Hockey East in scoring.

“That’s the way it goes sometimes,” said a disappointed Kolanos. “You take your medicine and move on.”
