Joshua Roy and Riley Kidney hosted Junior Team Canada Camp

The last World Junior Championship presented in December was canceled due to the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

The next CHJ will actually be presented and as indicated by Mikaël Lalancette, 13 representatives of the QMJHL have been invited to the summer camp.

Two of these representatives are CH hopefuls. They are Joshua Roy and Riley Kidney.

Running from July 23-27, the summer camp will determine the players who will make the Team Canada roster for next December.

The canceled (and postponed) 2022 World Cup will take place next August. Without exception, all players who were on the team will of course be invited back if their NHL club doesn’t mind. If some players are unable to attend, they must be replaced by Summer Camp guests. Would Roy be one of the first to be called up as a backup in August? Details next month.

For Joshua Roy and Riley Kidney, the tournament would be a great way to end their 2022 season. Especially for Roy, who will have won almost everything this year. He was the QMJHL regular-season leading scorer, the third leading scorer in the playoffs, won Personality of the Year, and is a finalist for the league’s Most Valuable Player award.

A gold medal (in January 2023) with Team Canada would be quite the exclamation point for his 2022. Oh, and I almost forgot: he signed his first professional contract with Montreal.

Riley Kidney has also signed a contract with the Canadian.

For the two Montreal hopefuls, let’s hope they make a good impression at camp.
