Blizzard Forward Andriy Denyskin to Play for Ukraine in World Juniors
Andriy Denyskin has been chosen by his country of Ukraine to play in the World Juniors Tournament taking place in Bled, Slovenia from December 9th to the 15th. Ukraine will be competing in Group B against Italy, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, and Slovenia. Denyskin (6’5” 220 lbs.) is off to a great start for the Blizzard this year. He’s currently 4th on the team in scoring with 17 points. Denyskin is tied for the team lead in goals with 12, and he already has two hat tricks this season.
“I’m very happy for Andriy being able to represent his country in this IIHF World Tournament. As a former USA Olympian it’s a very humbling experience to be selected to play for your country. Andrei has played well this year, and it’s nice to see Ukraine recognize Andrei for what he can bring to the team. I wish Andrei the best in what should be a very memorable opportunity.” Moe Mantha Brooking Blizzard Head Coach
