Sparks In Line to Fire Up Team USA (The Hockey Writers - Combine)
by Ian MacLaren
After the Guelph Storm’s win over the Brampton Battalion on Friday night, Steve Fitzsimmons sent out the following good news / bad news tweet:
Garett Sparks looked sharp in goal tonight for Guelph and is in the zone right now. I think he'll make the Team USA Junior team next week.

How could such a suggestion be viewed as ‘bad news’, you ask? While being chosen to represent Team USA at the World Junior Championship in Russia would no doubt be a huge honour and tremendous opportunity for Garret Sparks, his absence from the net would be greatly felt in the Royal City over the course of the tournament, potentially setting the Storm back in their quest to jump into a top 4 spot in the OHL’s Western Conference.
