Juulsen cut from Canada

Abbotsford hockey product not making trip to Finland

Abbotsford’s Noah Juulsen will not be packing his bags for Finland.

The 2015 Montreal Canadiens first round draft pick was one of four cuts made by Team Canada on Sunday as it finalized its world junior championship roster.

Juulsen starred on the Abbotsford Hawks before playing one season with the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds of the British Columbia Major Midget League. He was then drafted 70th overall by the Everett Silvertips of the Western Hockey League in 2012, and is currently in his third season with the club. He recorded 52 points in 68 games last season, and has 11 points in 24 games this season.

The defenceman previously won a silver medal with Canada in 2014 at the U17 World Junior Championships. Juulsen and the Silvertips next play the Vancouver Giants at the Pacific Coliseum on Dec. 27.

Abbotsford will still be represented at the event, with Vancouver Canucks draft pick Jake Virtanen added to the team last week.

The tournament kicks off on Boxing Day, with the gold medal game occurring on Jan. 5.
