Cornwall Ontario — Cornwall Colts star forward Grant Cooper has been invited to the Team Canada East camp in advance of the World Junior A Challenge tournament.
The selection camp begins December 6th in Toronto.
Carleton Place Canadians Head Coach Jason Clarke was named as Team Canada East Head Coach last week.
“I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity to represent Eastern Canada with the best players in Jr. A hockey,” said Cooper. “Coach Clarke has watched me play many times but I have to remain focused on working my hardest for the chance of skating for Team Canada East.”
Cooper has 7 goals and 8 assists for 15 points in 14 games so far this season. He picked up an assist in his first game back in the lineup last weekend after missing a month with an upper body injury.
Whitby, Ontario is hosting the 2015 World Junior A Challenge from December 13th to December 19th.
Trenton and Wellington are scheduled to host three exhibition games on December 11th to help finalize the Team Canada East roster.
