Jamie Benn and Tyler Myers have been named to the 38 man selection camp roster for the Canadian World Junior Team.
The training camp begins December 11th in Ottawa.
A total of 18 WHL players will attempt to make this years squad, with 11 coming from the Ontario Hockey League and only 5 from the QMJHL.
Luke Schenn, Blake Comeau, Josh Gorges, Shea Weber, Brett McLean and Chuck Kobasew are just a few Rockets to wear Canadian colours.
The big surprise of the morning was Colin Long failing to make the U-S Junior Team. Only 5 WHL players were named to the team, including Spokane Chiefs Mitch Wahl, Drayson Bowman and Tyler Johnson. Seattle's Jim O'Brien and Jonathon Blum of Vancouver were also named to the team. Is Long not better than Johnson or O'Brien?
