With the World Junior A Challenge approaching, forward for the Merritt Centennials Rylan Van Unen has made it through selection camp in Calgary for Team Canada West and will be part of the main roster heading to Truro in Nova Scotia.
Head Coach of the Cents and Assistant Coach with Team Canada West Joe Martin says that Van Unen played his was onto the team.
"He played a simple game, finished a lot of body checks, scored a few goals on the second day of camp, his line was one of the best lines if not the best line that day, and that was impressive."
Through 26 games this season Van Unen has 12 points and is 3rd on the team in goals with 8.
Van Unen will get his next chance to impress when Team Canada West begins its quest for a 5th Gold medal against the Czech Republic on December 10.
