ST. CATHARINES, Ontario (AP) Rookie defenseman Victor Mete has no trouble exchanging his Montreal Canadiens' jersey for Team Canada colors and an opportunity to compete in the World Junior hockey championships later this month.

Mete says it's been a childhood dream to play in the annual tournament and sensed the possibility coming with Montreal's blue line getting healthier. He was also a healthy scratch twice over the past two weeks.

Mete is additionally motivated after being among the junior national team's final cuts last year.
