The Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL), in partnership with Hockey Canada, has announced the evaluation camp rosters for Canada West in preparation for the 2009 World Junior A Challenge. The evaluation camp is the lone camp for Canada West and will take place in Okotoks, Alta., from Sept. 27-29.

The top 40 players from the five western leagues of the CJHL have been invited to participate in the evaluation camp for an opportunity to earn a position on the Canada West roster. Canada West will include the top 22 players from the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL), Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL), Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL), Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) and Superior International Junior Hockey League (SIJHL).

We are excited to have the roster selected for the camp in Okotoks and are looking forward to finally having them on the ice as a group,” says Canada West general manager Leonard Strandberg. “I am thankful for the diligence of our staff and the effort they provided in the selection process in what is a very busy time for them. We are also excited to working with the organizing committee in Okotoks and thank them for stepping forward to host the camp. We would like to welcome head coach Dan MacDonald, assistant coach Chris Fuss and the Oilers training staff as they assist us with the camp."
