Millcreek Township native Cameron Trejchel, 12, has been selected to play for the Buffalo Jr. Sabres’ 12-under team in the prestigious Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament. The 53rd annual event will be held Feb. 14-24 at Pepsi Coliseum, in Quebec City, Quebec – home of the NHL’s Quebec Nordiques from 1972-1995 and current home to the QMJHL’s Quebec Remparts.
