VEGAS (February 12, 2020) - The Vegas Jr. Golden Knights Pee-Wee AA team will participate in the Quebec International Pee-Wee Tournament from February 12-23, 2020 in Quebec, Canada. This will be the second consecutive season the Jr. Golden Knights 12AA team will play in the prestigious tournament.

The Jr. Golden Knights will start this year's tournament on Saturday, February 15 as they take on Evry-Viry from Paris, France at 12:30 p.m. PT. The Vegas Jr. Golden Knights Pee-Wee AA team is led by head coach Clayton Stoner, who spent eight seasons playing in the NHL and was selected by the Golden Knights in the 2017 Expansion Draft.

The Quebec International Pee-Wee Tournament is widely considered the preeminent competition for 11-12-year olds in the world. More than 1200 NHL players have participated in the annual tournament, including current Golden Knights William Carrier, Marc-Andre Fleury, Jonathan Marchessault, Jon Merrill, Max Pacioretty, Ryan Reaves, Paul Stastny and Alex Tuch . In addition, hockey legends Guy Lafleur, Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe, Mario Lemieux, Patrick Roy and Brad Park, as well as current NHL stars such as Patrice Bergeron, Connor McDavid, Johnny Gaudreau, Auston Matthews, Steven Stamkos, and Anze Kopitar have also competed.

The Jr. Golden Knights return five players from last year's team that went 6-2 overall in Quebec City, when the club made a run into the tournament's semifinals before falling in overtime, 3-2, to the St. Albert Saints of Alberta, Canada.
