A closer look at each of the 20 teams participating at the 2021 World Selects Trophy.

The ‘20 in 20’ series takes a deep dive into each of the 20 teams competing at the historic World Selects Trophy in Nashville, Tennessee on June 28th. This 15U tournament is set to feature the best players in the age group from around the world with players from the U.S., Canada and Europe. Today, we take a closer look at California Ice Dogs.

CALIFORNIA ICE DOGS

Per its name, the foundation of the California Ice Dogs’ roster is built on players from the Golden State. Twelve of the 17 players on the roster hail from California and played for AAA teams in the state during the winter season. 

Anaheim Jr. Ducks goaltender Logan Perez is a fine talent between the pipes and should provide decent support behind a speedy bunch up front. A pair of Arizona forwards can be expected to provide an offensive spark for the Ice Dogs, with the Chayse Laurie and Hayden Hastings.

Can California claim the championship at the 2021 event? It’ll be the Ice Dogs’ first appearance in the World Selects tournament and they’re bringing some of the best players from the west coast with them.
