Tyler Soy returned home from the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka U18 international hockey tournament with a gold medal.

The Cloverdale native played for Canada's national team at the eight-team competition staged in Slovakia and the Czech Republic Aug. 12-16. Canada won all five games played, claiming the gold medal in the tournament final on Saturday.

A forward with the Victoria Royals of the Western Hockey League (WHL), Soy tallied twice and assisted on four other goals in five games played. He got at least one point in four of the five games Canada played, but was on the scoresheet in every game. He took his only penalty of the tournament, a delay of game minor, in the gold medal contest.

Soy completed his first full season in the WHL last spring, tallying 15 goals and 30 points in 65 games played. He will be back in Victoria Monday when veterans report for the Royals' training camp.
