Crofton’s Jenks headed to WJAC camp

Crofton’s Jesse Jenks is among six goalies vying for a spot with Team Canada West at the 2014 World Junior A Challenge during a selection camp in Calgary this weekend.

Jenks, who played minor hockey in the Cowichan Valley before embarking on his junior A career with the Prince George Spruce Kings, played four games with Canada West at the same tournament a year ago and is hoping to return for this year’s event, which will run Dec. 14-20 in Kindersley, Sask.

Jenks has nine wins and six losses in 15 appearances for the Spruce Kings this year, along with a 3.47 goals-against average and .905 save percentage. He has committed to play for the NCAA Div. 1 University of Alaska Fairbanks Nanooks for 2015/16.
