“It’s an honour to be given the opportunity to attend selection camp,” said Ang. “Growing up and watching the World Juniors every year, it’s an unbelievable feeling to be considered for this year’s National Junior Team and to be given a chance to represent our country.”

Petes goalie Dylan Wells and Peterborough native Owen Tippett of the Mississauga Steelheads were not invited to camp.

The camp will run from Dec. 13 to 15 in St. Catharines.
