Steinbach Pistons netminder Matt Radomsky, the leading goaltender in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, is one of 22 players that has been named to Team Canada West that will be competing in the World Junior 'A' Challenge, Dec. 9-16 at Bonnyville, Alberta.

Radomsky, along with Pistons' forward Kyle Bettens have been in Calgary this week at tryouts. The final team team was announced late Wednesday afternoon. Bettens should be back in the line-up for the Pistons when they host the Winnipeg Blues Friday night in Steinbach.

Radomsky, who leads the MJHL with three shutouts and a 2.11 goals against average and is second with a .924 save percentage, will likely miss six Pistons games this month while he competes at the World Junior 'A' Challenge.

Team Canada West is comprised of players from the MJHL, SJHL, AJHL and BCJHL. The other goaltender selected was Matthew Davis, who plays for Spruce Grove of the AJHL.

Two other MJHL players were also selected to Team West, forward Reilly Funk of the Portage Terriers, and forward Matt Osadick, the former Eastman Select, who is having a breakout MJHL season with the Swan Valley Stampeders.

There will be five teams competing in the World Junior 'A' Challenge, including Team Canada West, Team Canda East, Czech Republic, Russia and the United States. Team Canada West are the defending champions.
