Westside Warriors centre Seb Lloyd will play for Team Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge.

Warriors’ Lloyd to play in World Junior A Challenge

West Kelowna centre selected to Team Canada West for international event next week in Nova Scotia.

Seb Lloyd will wear his country’s colours next week at the World Junior A Challenge in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

The West Kelowna Warriors’ forward was one of 15 BCHL players named Thursday to the Team Canada West roster for the international tournament which begins Nov. 5.

“It’s just a great opportunity for me,” said Lloyd. “To represent the Warriors at a prestigious event like this is going to be unreal. I’m just going to play my game, and keep it simple.”

In 16 games with the Warriors this season, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound Lloyd has seven goals and 14 assists for 21 points.

Warriors Associate Coach/GM Brent Gough says Lloyd, a Prince George native would be a great addition to any team.

“He plays such an offensive game that it’s very hard to defend,” said Gough. “His hockey smarts are right up there, and he’s going to make a lot of players think twice when he has the puck.”

A second Warrior attended the Team West evaluation camp last week, but David Pope didn’t make the final cut.

Lloyd will be the first Warrior to play in the World Junior A Challenge since Grayson Downing made back-to-back appearances in 2009 and 2010.
