Thursday, November 1, 2012 - Submitted by Hockey Canada
Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Junior Hockey League, announced Thursday the 22 players that will represent Canada West at the 2012 World Junior A Challenge, Nov. 5-11 in Yarmouth, N.S.
 
The roster was selected by Canada West head coach Dean Brockman (St. Benedict, Sask./Humboldt, SJHL), along with assistant coaches Jason McKee (Irma, Alta./Spruce Grove, AJHL) and Ryan Smith (Headingley, Man./Selkirk, MJHL) following a four-day selection camp at the Markin MacPhail Centre in Calgary.

“As with any Team Canada roster, there were a number of difficult choices to get us to 22 players,” said Brockman. “We’re excited about the roster we’ve put together, and we’re confident this team will represent western Canada with pride in Yarmouth.”
 
The Canada West roster includes:
·         two goaltenders, seven defencemen and 13 forwards;
·         15 players from the BCHL, three players from the AJHL, two players from the SJHL and two players from the MJHL;
