With Team Canada East and Team Canada West competing for gold at the 2018 World Junior A Challenge this week in Bonnyville, Alta., Hockey Canada has announced the 2019 event is heading back to British Columbia for the fourth time. Dawson Creek has been selected to host the 2019 World Junior A Challenge, set for Dec. 7-15, 2019.
The 2019 World Junior A Challenge - a showcase of Canadian and international Junior A talent - represents a partnership between Hockey Canada, the Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) and B.C. Hockey, as well as the local host committee and NHL Central Scouting.
Two Canadian teams – Team Canada East and Team Canada West – will compete against a group of top hockey nations for a gold medal at the 4,500-seat Encana Events Centre next December.
