"After a long evaluation process through summer camp, the early weeks of the CHL season and the Canada-Russia Series, we are nearing the final steps in selecting the roster that will represent Canada at the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship," said Canada Head Scout Brad McEwen. 

"We are expecting a highly competitive camp from these 31 players, and we know there will be many difficult decisions when it comes time to select the players who will wear the Maple Leaf in the Czech Republic."

Lavoie was drafted by the Oilers in the second round of the 2019 NHL Draft (38th-overall). Rodrigue was selected by the Orange & Blue in Round 2 of the 2018 Draft (62nd-overall).

The selection camp will run from Dec. 9-12 in Oakville, ON.
