Jonah Gadjovich (left) and Nick Suzuki have been invited to Team Canada World Junior selection camp that runs next week, to compete for a spot on the final 23-man roster.

The camp will run from December 13 to 15 in St. Catharines.

Two Owen Sound Attack players are Team Canada invitees. "With a talent pool as deep as we have in this country, we believe the 22 players eventually selected from camp will give us the best chance at bringing home a gold medal".

Canada will compete in exhibition games against Czech Republic in London, Ontario, on December 20, and Switzerland in Hamilton, Ont., on December 22.

Point, who was not invited to Canada's World Junior Summer Camp, has had an incredible sophomore season with the Colgate Raiders posting a stingy 1.76 goals against and a solid.943 save percentage through 15 games this season.

Canada is looking to rebound from a 5-4 shootout loss against the United States in the gold medal game of the 2017 WJC.

Jost, now with the Colorado Avalanche in the National Hockey League, is eligible to play again at the World Juniors if the Avs choose to loan him.

The 2018 WJC will be held in Buffalo from December 26 to January 5, 2018.

Both Canada East and West will hit the ice Sunday, Dec. 10, with Canada West playing Czech Republic at 3:30 p.m. and Canada East playing Russian Federation at 7:30 p.m.at the Rath-Eastlink Community Centre.

Group B consists of Russia, Sweden, Czech Republic, Switzerland and Belarus.
