Email Your Favorite Player

Dec.29, 2004

Fans of Canada's National Junior Team have been very supportive throughout this year's World Junior Championships. Thousands of Canadians have made the trek from around the nation to cheer on their team in Grand Forks this year. The citizens of Winnipeg have once again shown their passion for World Junior Hockey as thousands have driven the two hours to Grand Forks to be a part of the crowd at the Ralph Engelstad Arena.

The Canadian games have attracted the best crowds to date at the Ralph Engelstad Arena with 10 739 fans at December 27th game vs. Sweden. The Canadian fans have been quite visible in the seats of the Ralph Engelstad Arena as they make every Canadian game seem like a home game.

One way in which fans who are not able to come to the games can support their favourite players is by utilizing the 'Email Your Favourite Player' feature on the National Junior Team's official website found at www.hockeycanada.ca 

This interactive feature allows Canadians the opportunity to send their best wishes to their favourite players as well as Team Canada's Coaching and Support staff. Currently, thousands of emails have been sent to the team.

Everyone from fans to family and friends have sent along their words of encouragement to Canada's National Junior Team.
