Burnaby's Newall named to national team

Hockey Canada has selected goalie Kimberley Newell of Burnaby to play on the national team at the world under-18 hockey championships in Finland Dec. 29 to Jan. 5.

Newell is currently playing for Princeton University after spending last year as the only female in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League with the Kootenay Ice.

She played for Canada in a three-game series against the United States in Blaine, Minn., in August.

Canada will play in a round-robin group with Germany, Finland and Hungary, with its opening game against Hungary on Dec. 29 in Vierumaki, Finland. Canada won last year's championship as well as 2010 while finishing second in the other three versions of the tournament held so far.
