Groulx: Starting goaltender job up for grabs at Canadian world junior camp

TORONTO - Canadian world junior head coach Benoit Groulx says the starting goaltender job is up for grabs.

Camp is underway ahead of the Dec. 26-Jan. 5 tournament in Montreal and Toronto.

Zach Fucale of the Halifax Mooseheads and Eric Comrie of the Tri-City Americans have made the team, but each netminder will get a chance to prove they deserve the starter's job.

Fucale played for Canada at the 2014 tournament in Malmo, Sweden, while Comrie is making his world junior debut.

Canada is coming off a fourth-place finish and hasn't won gold in five years.

Groulx says each goalie will get a start when Canada plays exhibition games against the CIS Toronto Selects this weekend before heading to St. Catharines, Ont., for pre-competition camp.
