Gaber Invited to Team Canada West Tryouts

For the second straight year, Gilbert Plains Riese Gaber has been invited to the Team Canada West Tryouts.

Last year, Gaber made the team that takes part in the World Junior A Challenge, and he recorded one point in four games.

"There's going to be a lot of new, and really good players there," said Gaber. "I don't think there's more pressure on me to make this team, but my expectations of myself are high for sure."

So far with the Dauphin Kings this season, Gaber has 18 points, which is a team high in 23 games.

"I don't think it's been the best start for me overall," said Gaber. "I had a good start, but the last five or so games I don't think they're what I'm capable of. Hopefully these next few games I can get some confidence back."

Gaber is one of 60 players who will be in Calgary from December 2 until the 5 trying to crack a roster spot.

"It's awesome to know I'm recognized at an elite level," said Gaber. "Anytime you're trying to represent Canada, it's a huge honour.

This year, the World Junior A Challenge will take place in Truro, Nova Scotia.
