Steenbergen invited to World Junior selection camp

The Sylvan Lake Sniper is getting a shot at playing for Team Canada at the upcoming World Junior Hockey Championship.

As many had expected, two star members of the Soo Greyhounds were among 32 players invited to Canada's National Junior Team Selection Camp on Wednesday.

"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".

Jonathan Ang leads the Peterborough Petes with 14 goals, 19 assists and 33 points this season.

Johnston, along with four other players on the team, played for Canada East past year in Bonneyville, Alta., and helped the team earn a silver medal. He was selected in round five (128th overall) at this year's NHL Draft by the Arizona Coyotes.

"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 in a Hockey Canada press release. 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.

The final rosters for both Canada East and Canada West have been released, and both teams feature a few returning faces.

After the four-day camp, Canada will pare down its roster to 22 players that will proudly wear the Canadian jersey in Buffalo, December 26 to January 5, as they seek to win the nation's 16th World Juniors gold medal. Following the selection camp, Canada will pick the final group of 22 players.
