Here’s just one more reason for San Jose Sharks fans to watch the World Junior Championships later this month.

Of course, all eyes around the hockey world, not just the Bay Area’s, will be glued on top 2023 Draft prospects like Canada’s Connor Bedard and Adam Fantilli, and Sweden’s Leo Carlsson.

Looking beyond San Jose’s potential 2023 first-round pick though, side by side with Bedard and Fantilli, goaltender Benjamin Gaudreau has been named to Team Canada.

19-year-old Gaudreau, San Jose’s 2021 third-rounder, will be contending with Thomas Milic for playing time.

The Sarnia Sting netminder has a 9-8-3 record with an .868 Save % so far this season.

The 2023 World Junior Championships begin on Dec. 26.
