Aldergrove's Shea Theodore is in camp with Canada's junior national team in Toronto

Aldergrove’s Shea Theodore is off to Toronto in hopes of landing a spot with the Canadian junior hockey team.

Theodore, a defenceman with the Western Hockey League’s Seattle Thunderbirds, is among the 29 players invited to attend the camp.

It begins Dec. 11 with the final roster of 22 players set to be named on Dec. 25.

The 2015 International Ice Hockey Federation world junior championships are being co-hosted by Toronto and Montreal from Dec. 26 to Jan. 5.

Canada has 10 defencemen in camp with seven expected to make the roster.

The 19-year-old Theodore was a first round draft pick  (26th overall) of the Anaheim Ducks in the 2013 NHL entry draft.

In 10 games with Seattle this season, he has two goals and six assist.

Theodore had hurt his elbow in training camp with the Ducks and he played five games with Anaheim’s AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals, registering three goals and two assists before joining Seattle.

Last season, he was the Thunderbirds’ top scorer with 22 goals and 79 points in 70 games.
