On Tuesday the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge will begin in Ontario. This will be our first chance to see DU's 2011 recruit Zac Larraza play on the world stage since announcing his verbal commitment to DU three weeks ago.

Larraza is a big kid (6'3"" - 178 lbs.) from Arizona who has huge upside potential. We'll see how he does against this level of competition and follow his progress throughout the Tournament.

Canada will have five teams entered in the Tournament.
Group A
FIN - Finland
ONT - Ontario Canada
QUE - Qu├ębec Canada
- Sweden
WST - Canada West

Group B
ATL - Canada Atlantic
- Czech Republic
PAC - Canada Pacific
- Russia
USA - United States
