Gilbert Plains Riese Gaber Makes Team Canada West!

Gilbert Plains Riese Gaber is heading to Nova Scotia today to take part in the World Junior A Challenge as he has made Team Canada West.

"It's a great feeling," said Gaber. "Anytime you get to represent your Country and throw the Canadian jersey over your shoulder, it's a huge honour."

This year is the second straight year that Gaber made Team Canada West after he made the squad last year when the Challenge was played in Alberta.

"Any player here could play on the team," said Gaber. "I just had to work as hard as I could, and hope the coaches wanted a player like me, and thankfully they did."

Last year in four games at the Challenge, Gaber put up one point.

"I think I just have to give everything I have," said Gaber. "If I do that night in, night out, hopefully, things will take care of themselves and I can get some points."

Seven players in the MJHL took part in the tryouts, but the Gilbert Plains native was the only player in the league to come out with a spot on the team.

Gaber and the rest of Team Canada West kick off their World Junior A Challenge on December 10 against the Czech Republic.
