Canada taps Rocket's Foote

Kelowna Rockets captain Nolan Foote has been invited to join Team Canada's selection camp for the upcoming 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Foote will join 30 other players competing for a chance to represent Canada in the Czech Republic. 

The national junior team selection camp takes place in Oakville, Ont., and features a pair of games against a team of U SPORTS all-stars Dec. 11-12. 

“After a long evaluation process through summer camp, the early weeks of the CHL season and the Canada-Russia Series, we are nearing the final steps in selecting the roster that will represent Canada at the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship," says head scout Brad McEwen. 

"We are expecting a highly competitive camp from these 31 players, and we know there will be many difficult decisions when it comes time to select the players who will wear the Maple Leaf in the Czech Republic.”
