Attack’s Lyszczarczyk named Top Forward at U20 Division 1 Group B World Championship
Owen Sound Attack forward Alan Lyszczarczyk enjoyed a highly successful U20 Division 1 Group B World Championship in Bled, Slovenia with Team Poland this past month.
The 19-year-old native of Wallington, New Jersey was named the top forward of the tournament as chosen by the directorate, leading all players in scoring with 15 points including eight goals, seven assists and a plus-8 rating over five games.
Lyszczarczyk, who was also named Poland’s player of the tournament, started the event with a bang, recording six points (2-4–6) in a 9-4 win over Italy. He added four points (2-2–4) in a 5-4 victory over Slovenia and scored an additional two goals in a 4-1 triumph over Lithuania.
Now in his third OHL season, Lyszczarczyk has 13 points (6-7–13) in 23 games with Owen Sound after spending the past two campaigns with the Sudbury Wolves.
Poland finished with an overall record of 4-0-1-0, narrowly missing out on advancing to Group A in 2019, losing 3-2 in overtime in a championship final matchup against Norway.
