Okanagan BCHL players selected for worldwide tournament

Okanagan BCHL players selected for worldwide tournament

If chosen, this would be the second Team Canada experience for Point, who was selected to play for Team Canada East in the World Junior A Challenge back in 2015-16.

His name was brought up by the hockey experts in early November, and today the news that North Bay's Colton Point will challenge for a goaltending spot on Team Canada's World Junior Team became a reality.

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.

Thirteen of the 22 players selected hailed from a BCHL team including the Interior Division's Brett Stapley from Vernon, Jonny Tychonick and Ryan O'Connell from Penticton, and Rylan Van Unen from Merritt. No members of the Medicine Hat Tigers were invited to the selection camp. He has committed to UMass-Lowell and was named one of the NHL Central Scouting's top draft prospects for 2018.

Some Okanagan athletes will be representing Canada on the world stage later this month.

Team Canada East will open the tournament against Russian Federation in prime time on Sunday when the World Junior A Challenge returns to Atlantic Canada.

The Canada West team will kick off the tournament against the Czech Republic on Sunday. 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.

Johnston, along with four other players on the team, played for Canada East previous year in Bonneyville, Alta., and helped the team earn a silver medal. 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. The team also won silver medals in 2008, 2009, and 2012, as well as bronze in 2013.
