DiPietro Ready For Canada-Russia Series
Michael DiPietro is in Sarnia to compete in the Canada-Russia Series.
Team OHL will compete against the Russian National Junior Team in Game 3 of the six-game cross Canada series in Sarnia Thursday and in Game 4 in Oshawa on Monday November 12th.
This is DiPietro's second appearance in the series, which is described a tune-up for World Junior Selection.
Considering DiPietro didn't make the cut last year, he says he's loking forward to getting on the ice.
"Heading into this year I'm more determined and I have more of a business-like attitude heading into a game like this and trying to show my best and put a good foot forward."
Hockey Canada is expected to announce who is invited to World Junior camp some time in late November, early December.
