SAULT STE. MARIE, O.N. – Tristen Nielsen and the rest of team Canada White are headed to the semifinals at the World U17 Hockey Challenge.

Fort St. John native Tristen Nielsen is still tied for the most points in the tournament with four goals. Jett Woo scored the game-winning goal with 89 seconds left in the third to give Canada White the win.

Canada White will be playing against Sweden for the right to play in the gold medal game at 12:30 this afternoon Fort St. John time.
