Head coach Pat Quinn, along with assistant coaches Guy Boucher, Dave Cameron, Willie Desjardins and head scout Al Murray, will use the game to evaluate players striving to make the roster for Team Canada, which is aiming to win its fifth consecutive gold medal in the 2009 tournament.

Canada’s national junior team selection camp will run from Dec. 11-15. Further details on the selection camp will be announced in the coming weeks.
