BCHL, World Junior A Challenge, Chilliwack Chiefs, Russia, Czech Republic, Sweden, Hockey Canada

The final roster that Canada West takes into next week’s World Junior A Challenge includes 14 BCHL skaters.

The roster was announced Tuesday evening.

Powell River netminder Sean Maguire got the nod along with Tyler Briggs of the AJHL’s Lloydminster Bobcats.

Four of the seven defencemen hail from the BCHL, including Luke Juha and Brett Corkey of the Vernon Vipers.

Troy Stecher of the Penticton Vees is joined by Reece Wilcox of the Merritt Centennials.

The BCHL presence is truly pronounced up front where nine of the 13 forwards play in the Coastal circuit.

Penticton’s Travis St. Denis and Curtis Lolk are joined by Surrey’s Brandon Morley and Michael Stenerson.

The Vipers send Aaron Hadley and the Spruce Kings send Jujhar Khaira.

Evan Richardson (Powell River), Wesley Myron (Victoria) and Alex Kerfoot (Coquitlam) also made the grade.
