Canada East, West rosters announced for World Junior A Challenge

Canada invites 32 players to Junior Team selection camp

"It's an extreme honour you know, I'm very happy about and it, one of my main goals coming into this season was to make the camp and then make the big run at the team so I'm very happy about it". Canada finished with silver a year ago in Toronto and Montreal after a 5-4 shootout loss in the final to the United States of America.

"Hockey at all levels across the country continues to produce talented and elite-level hockey players that makes our evaluation and selection process a hard one", said Shawn Bullock, Hockey Canada's senior manager of hockey operations and men's national teams. Canada coach Dominique Ducharme, coach and general manager for Drummondville of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, will likely set his 22-player roster after the game against Denmark.

As the World Junior A Challenge nears, both teams have completed their tryout camps and have selected 22 players each from across the country.

New graduation requirements considered for IN high school students
Byron Ernest, chairman of the Graduation Pathways Panel, said the recommendations will provide students with a "diploma plus". IN high school students will have new requirements to graduate, starting with the class of 2023.

A final group of 22 players will be chosen to represent Canada at the World Junior Championships, taking place this year in Buffalo, New York from December 26 to January 5. "We couldn't be more excited for our staff and players to get together in St. Catharines and begin the journey".

Point, who was not invited to Canada's World Junior Summer Camp, has had an incredible sophomore season with the Colgate Raiders posting a stingy 1.76 goals against and a solid.943 save percentage through 15 games this season. Canada will face the U Sport All-Star team for two games on December 13 and 14, before taking on Denmark on December 15.

That leaves 16 spots available as Hockey Canada will reduce the roster down to 23 players.
