The U.S. must be hurting for goalies if Sparks got an invite.

He has a record of 15 wins and 7 losses(plus 3 shootout losses) with a GAA of 2.87 and a SV% of .916.

The GAA leaves something to be desired but isn't that horrible in the OHL. Good enough for 5th in wins, 9th in the league in GAA and 6th in SV%.

He played quite well tonight against Kitchener. He's probably going to be #2 behind Kitchener's (and Anaheim's) John Gibson.

Make that 16 and 7.

Don't know much about Sparks. Is that record reflective of the team in front of him or his play in net?

I was a little unfair to him, I haven't really been following his progress recently, I just recall being underwhelmed by what I had previously seen from him.

I don't know a bunch about him either. I was just looking at his record and numbers to justify him being invited to the Camp.

But from what I have seen this year he's looked pretty damn good.

Sparks looked very solid in the Storm's win against Kitchener on Tuesday night, aside from the 1st goal. He has also benefited from playing in all but 1 game so far this season. The test of him being worth the selection will come when we see how Guelph plays without him.

So let me vent a bit here...

Not only does the NHL screw us with this 3 month lock out, but they will most likely return to play just in time to also screw us out of the consolation prize. I was looking forward to, at the very least, watching the best world junior tournament in 8 years.

whoah, waitaminit. Did I miss a news story that was optimistic about the nhl strike being over soon? The WJC tryout invitees are already in Calgary. With no talks scheduled, Christmas break coming up, I don't see how the NHL would return before  Jan 5-6 ish at the earliest. And the gold medal game is Jan 6.

If it wasn't for the lockout he would have been invited.

Training camps would be before that if a season started in the first week of January.
