Hockey Canada released a list of 29 camp invitees for the upcoming world junior championships, which begin December 26 in Moncton and Halifax.

Bedard, who has 64 points in 28 games with the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League this season, helped Canada win the 2022 tournament, which was held in August in Edmonton after being moved from its usual time due to an outbreak of the Omicron variant of the new coronavirus.

Joining Bedard in camp are 2022 gold medalists Ethan Del Mastro, Nathan Gaucher, Riley Kidney, Carson Lambos, Zack Ostapchuk, Brennan Othmann, Joshua Roy, Logan Stankoven and Olen Zellweger.
