The World Junior A Challenge in Langley is drawing closer by the day.
Now it's getting down to the nitty gritty of working on picking a team that will represent Team Canada West November 7-13th in Langley.
Great news for Express Captain Alex Petan and his linemate Alex Kerfoot who have both been invited to the Team Canada West Selection camp.
It's been a great start to the season for Alex Petan who was named team captain, he has secured a scholarship to Michigan Tech University, and he leads the team in scoring with 18 points in the first 11 games of the season.
During training camp in September Kerfoot took part in the evaluation camp held in Canmore Alberta. So far this season Kerfoot has lived up to the expectations entering the season sitting second in team scoring with 14 points in his first 11 games. He is tied for first as the top scoring first year forwards in the Coastal conference. And he is first among all rookies in scoring born in 1994 or later in the BCHL.
In addition to Petan and Kerfoot being named to the selection camp, Express Athletic Therapist Erin Berkowski will be the team Therapist for Canada West.
In other Express news, defenceman Dana Tennenbaum has been traded to the Wellington Dukes of the OJHL. And the Express have brought in forward Connor Redmond. The 19 year old Richmond native has played parts of the last 4 seasons in the WHL with Red Deer and Vancouver playing 122 games scoring 7 goals and 19 points.
