The Maritime Junior A Hockey League has announced its 22-player roster for a pair of pre-tournament games ahead of the 2009 World Junior A Challenge, scheduled for Nov. 1-8 in Summerside, P.E.I. The MJAHL all-stars will take on Canada East in Truro, N.S. on Oct. 29 before facing Belarus the following night in Amherst, N.S.

“This is a great opportunity that we have been given to showcase our players and league against the top talents from Eastern Canada and the country of Belarus,” says Dave Ritcey, vice-president of the MJAHL. “When this opportunity was brought to the board, our chairman, John Lynn, strongly suggested to the 11 governors in the league that if we are to do this, it is important that every MJAHL team has a player represented.”

The 13 forwards, seven defenseman and two goalies that will represent the 2009 Maritime Junior A Prospects were selected by the coaching staff at the annual Showcase weekend in Summerside in early October. The staff consists of head coach Shawn Evans (Truro Bearcats) and assistant coaches Corey Crocker (Amherst Ramblers) and Billy McGuigan (Miramichi Timberwolves).

The MJAHL all-star team features four members of the Truro Bearcats, four members of the Woodstock Slammers, three members of the Amherst Ramblers, three members of the Summerside Western Captitals, two members of the Miramichi Timberwolves, one member of the Bridgewater Lumberjacks, one member of the Campbellton Tigers, one member of the Dieppe Commandos, one member of the Halifax Lions, one member of the Pictou County Weeks Crushers and one member of the Yarmouth Mariners
