Veterans Alexis Lafrenière, Jared McIsaac and Ty Smith were three of the 31 players named to Canada’s world junior hockey championship selection camp on Monday afternoon.

Lafrenière had a goal as the youngest player on last year’s team that finished sixth at the 2019 event in Victoria and Vancouver.

The 18-year-old Lafrenière leads the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in points with 17 goals and 42 assists for the Rimouski Oceanic this season.

Smith had three assists and McIsaac had one helper for Canada last year.

The 19-year-old Smith has four goals and 12 assists on defence for the Western Hockey League’s Spokane Chiefs.

McIsaac had off-season shoulder surgery and has only played one game for the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL.

Four goaltenders, 10 defencemen and 17 forwards will compete for spots on Canada’s roster from Dec. 9-12 in Oakville, Ont.

The 2020 world juniors will be in Ostrava and Trinec, Czech Republic.
