Lind to suit up for Canucks at Young Stars Classic

A Kelowna Rocket is hitting the ice at the Young Stars Classic in Penticton this fall.

Kole Lind was taken 33rd overall by Vancouver at the NHL draft this year, and will appear for the Canucks in the tournament against the top prospects from the Oilers and the Flames.

It's a tournament that fellow Rocket Dillon Dube played in last year, after being taken in the second round by Calgary.

Lind finished 15th in league scoring last year, and put up 12 points in 17 playoff games.

The tournament runs from September 8 to 11 at the South Okanagan Events Centre.
