(MONTREAL, QC) For the fifth consecutive year, ITECH and Hockey Canada invited children from across Canada to draw an original Canadian-themed mask design that will be worn by Team Canada’s goaltenders during the upcoming 2008 IIHF World Junior Championship in Liberec and Pardubice, Czech Republic from to .

Based on the past success of the Design-A-Mask contest, which produced unique designs worn by the likes of Marc-André Fleury, Justin Pogge and Jeff Glass, this season’s competition again generated two winners; Morgen Schinnour of Drumheller, Alberta from the 13-and-Older category, and Gabriel Coughlan of St-Jean-Chrysostome, Quebec from 12-and-Under age group.

On top of the thrill of having their designs worn by Team Canada’s netminders, the two contest winners will also receive their very own duplicate, custom-painted ITECH mask, which will be autographed by members of Canada’s National Junior Team.

The Design-A-Mask contest was part of Hockey Canada’s kick off to the hockey season, Puck Drop ’07, which ran from September 8th to October 14th. Puck Drop ’07 was a national initiative led by Hockey Canada with participation from its 13 provincial Branches, minor hockey associations and partners to celebrate the start of the 2007-08 hockey season. Each year, 550,000 registered players’ lace up the skates to participate in hockey in Canada. In fact, on an annual basis, Hockey Canada welcomes close to 80,000 new participants, including players, coaches and officials.
