Anthony Mantha has been called into action to represent Canada at the World Under-18 Championship later this month in the Czech Republic.
Mantha, a forward with the Val D’or Foreurs, had 22 goals and 51 points in 63 games this season, including 40 points over the final 27 games of the season. His Foreurs were swept in the QMJHL playoffs by the Rimouski Oceanic. The 17-year-old had two goals and four points in the series.
The six-foot-three forward from Longueuil, QC. joins fellow QMJHLer William Carrier and Troy Bourke of the Prince George Cougars as the only three players named to the event.
