Hockey Canada names 32 players to world junior selection camp

Tigers defenceman David Quenneville, at one point speculated to receive an invite to the camp, was not on the final list of invited players. It will feature three games, including two matches against a team of U Sports (formerly CIS) all-stars on December 13 and 14, and a final match against Denmark on December 15. Also in Group A are the United States, Slovakia and Denmark. Group B is comprised of Sweden, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Belarus and Russian Federation, which defeated the Swedes for bronze last January.

Makar, who is now playing in the NCAA for the University of MA, was selected fourth overall by the Colorado Avalanche in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

Canada's National Junior Team Sport Chek Selection Camp features a trio of games - two against a U SPORTS team on December 13 and 14, and a game against Denmark on December 15.

Montreal Canadiens blue-liner Victor Mete, Columbus Blue Jackets centre Pierre-Luc Dubois and Philadelphia Flyers centre remain junior eligible but weren't named to Canada's camp roster Wednesday.

National Hockey League clubs have until December 19 to decide whether they choose to loan additional age-eligible players to any of the participating countries in the World Junior Championship.

Joining Johnston from last year's team are Finn Evans of the Ottawa Junior Senators, Aiden Girduckis and Tim Theocharidis of the Carleton Place Canadians and Jack McBain of the Toronto Jr.

The quarter-finals will be held January 2 and the semifinals two days later.
