Ahead of the 2021 World Juniors Championship, Team Canada has been granted an extended selection camp, to be held from Nov. 16 to Dec. 13 in Red Deer, Alberta. Anaheim Ducks defensive prospect Jamie Drysdale has been invited as part of a 46-player roster. Drydale previously represented Team Canada in the 2019 World Juniors Under-18 tournament, scoring two assists in seven games.
If Lukas Dostal is one thing, it’s consistent. A third-round selection by the Anaheim Ducks in the 2018 NHL Draft, Dostal was the top-rated European goaltending prospect, dominating the Czech leagues. He signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Ducks the following May.
Regardless, I love a good hometown story and this one is pretty cute. The photo was taken prior to the third period of the game. Oilers winger Ryan Smyth had two seconds left on a slashing penalty he took at the end of the second period, and a 24-year-old Matt Cullen had scored the only goal of the game so far, putting the Ducks up 1-0.
