Before the battle for gold begins on November 8, Canada’s two World Junior A Challenge entries will get a chance to stretch their legs and the hometown Penticton Vees will see how they stack up against international competition when exhibition action comes to the Okanagan.
Canada West and Canada East will both hit the ice twice before the games count in the standings, including an all-Canadian match-up at the Wesbild Centre in Vernon, B.C. on Friday, November 5. The westerners then head to the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton the following night to face the United States in a rematch of the last two WJAC gold medal games, while Canada East rolls into West Kelowna, B.C. to take on Russia at Royal LePage Place.
