Meridian Centre to host World Jr. practise

The Meridian Centre is calling all hockey fans to catch some of the sport's future stars when they hit the ice in St. Catharines next month.

The Team Canada World Juniors will be practising at the downtown rink as they warm up before their quest for gold in Buffalo on Boxing Day.

The Meridian Centre is welcoming school boards, hockey associations and fans to take in a practise December 12th to the 14th.

Officials with the rink say large groups planning on arriving by bus must advise them by email with the date as well as the number of buses in their group.

Concession stands will also be open for all fans.
