A Prince George Cougars forward has a chance to earn a spot on the Czech Republic’s 2021 World Junior team.

2001- born Filip Koffer has been named to the Czech Selection Camp roster, set to take place November 11-17 in Litomerice, Czech Republic.

Koffer is one of 15 forwards named to selection camp and last week he played his first game with the Czech Republic senior men’s national team at the Karjala Cup in Helsinki, Finland.

In June, Koffer participated in the Czech’s Under-20 Summer Training Camp, which is part of the evaluation process for their World Junior Hockey Championship roster.

The Cougars’ winger is currently playing for HC Stadion Litomerice in the Czech2 League, and he has posted three points (1g, 2a) in six games.

The league has been paused for four weeks due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in the country.

Koffer was the Cougars top rookie scorer with 24 points (9g-15a) in 59 regular-season games last season and was seventh in team scoring.

The 19-year-old was selected 10th overall by the Cougars in the 2019 Canadian Hockey League Import Draft.

The 2021 World Junior Championship begins on Christmas Day, and the Czech Republic opens its tournament schedule on Dec. 26 against Sweden.
