Cuglietta Joins Pair of Centennials In Calgary For WJAC Try-Outs:

Diego Cuglietta has been added to the list of 60 players from Western Canada invited to try out for Team Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge's Selection Camp which begins Saturday, October 26th in Calgary, Alberta.

Diego (95) joins Centennial teammates Jeff Wight and Dane Birks at the camp, which ncludes 21 other BCHL players, and 3 goaltenders from the league as well.

This season has been getting better from game to game for Cuglietta; after a broken nose forced him out of a pair of games, he came back stronger than ever, and he now leads the Centennials with 3 goals, 13 assists and 16 points in 15 games.

Wight (95) has put up 6 goals and 9 assists for 15 points in 17 games, many of which coming after committing to the University of Connecticut in late-September.

Birks (95) has been a difference maker night in and night out this season, and he is the top scoring defender with a goal and 9 assists through 17 games.

The three players will be competing for a spot on Team Canada West, which will travel to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia on November 4th for the beginning of the World Junior A Challenge. 

The selection camp roster was chosen by Canada West head coach Jason McKee (Spruce Grove, AJHL), along with assistant coaches Trent Cassan (Yorkton, SJHL) and Ryan Smith (Selkirk, MJHL), and team manager Shawn Bullock (Hockey Canada).

Luke Pierce, the Centennials head coach, is off to Calgary this weekend as well to scout the camp for the CJHL TopProspects Game 

CJHL Prospects Game #1 will be played on Friday, November 8th at the Digby Arena in Digby, NS at 4:00PM Pacific.

On Saturday, November 9th, Game #2 will take place at the Mariners Centre in Yarmouth, NS at 1:00PM Pacific.
