As the puck prepares to drop on the 2012 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge this week in Windsor, Ont., 18 players who represented their province or region at past U17 tournaments are chasing gold in Alberta at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship.

The list includes three gold medallists, all from Ontario’s 2009 team, and six players who took part in the 2009 gold medal game between Ontario and Pacific – the last time the U17 final was an all-Canadian affair.

In addition to the selection camp numbers, 37 players with World Under-17 Hockey Challenge experience were in Edmonton in August for Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek Summer Development Camp.
