Wolves’ Lyszczarczyk a standout for Poland at IIHF Division I Group B World Championship
Sudbury Wolves forward Alan Lyszczarczyk put forth an impressive performance at the IIHF Division I Group B World Under-20 Hockey Championship in Budapest, Hungary last week.
The 18-year-old who originally hails from Nowy Targ, Poland finished as the tournament’s leading scorer with four goals, seven assists and 11 points over five games, helping the Poles to a 4-1 finish.
Poland fell 5-4 to Italy on Saturday, effectively ending their bid for gold. Hungary went on to defeat Slovenia 4-3 to secure the crown and advance to Group A. Edged by a single point, Poland had to settle for second place for a second straight year.
Lyszczarczyk has four goals, 15 assists and 19 points over 29 games with Sudbury in this, his second OHL season. He and the Wolves are off for the holiday break until December 29th when they visit the North Bay Battalion.
