Team Canada JuniorsEdit

When Team Canada prepares for the world juniors they usually play a local university team. In the west, during exam season for many players, that often entails putting together two or more teams. So these are not true "all-star" games but do involve an all-star-like blending of players from different teams. The CW teams usually also use Team Canada goaltenders because they usually have 4 goalies competing for spots.
