Four BC Hockey League players with Peninsula ties – including a pair of Surrey Eagles – are currently in Calgary, where they’re vying for a spot on on Team Canada West in preparation for the 2012 Junior ‘A’ Challenge.
The Challenge, which last year was held at the Langley Events Centre, is slated for Nov. 5-11 in Yarmouth, N.S.
Two Eagles were invited to the selection camp – defenceman Devon Toews and forward Michael Stenerson, a Semiahmoo Minor Hockey alum.
Also invited to the camp were former Eagles captain Brandon Morley – who was traded to the Coquitlam Express earlier this month – and Powell River Kings netminder Jonah Imoo, a South Surrey resident.
Imoo is also the BCHL’s reigning player of the week.
Both Stenerson and Morley were members of last year’s Canada West team.
In total, 24 BCHL players were invited to the tryout camp.
