Fort McMurray Oil Barons captain Carson Cooper and defenceman Colton Parayko have been picked for the Team Canada West evaluation camp next week in Canmore.
The 60-player camp will help select the team for the World Junior A Challenge in November.
Canada West will play in Group A at the 2011 World Junior A Challenge, joined by Sweden and the United States.
The gold medal game, which will be shown nationally on TSN/RDS, is set for Sunday, November 13.
Canada West has appeared in four of the five gold medal games at the World Junior A Challenges, winning gold in 2006 in Yorkton, Sask., and 2007 in Trail, B.C., before settling for silver in 2008 in Camrose, Alta., and 2009 in Summerside, P.E.I. It finished fourth last year in Penticton, B.C.
