To honour the 20th year of Junior U20 Ball Hockey, we have selected the top 25 players to wear the Red and White of which there has been 225 players.

The selections are based on the ten World U20 Championships that Canada has competed.  The team was chosen based on the players' impact in the tournament at the highest possible level.

The selection was organized by the National Ball Hockey Association of Canada and named in August of 2019.  The panel consisted of 5 individuals and included people who have worked in the game for an extended period and whose opinions are widely respected. 

No effort was made to distinguish a first team or second team, the organization instead choosing only to select a 25 player roster (3G, 8D & 14F) and listed below:

Goalies ~ Kevin Bailie (2012), David Di Gironimo (2000), Brian Valentine (2010)

Defence ~ Peter Cappadocia (2000), Paolo Colaiacovo (2002), Hayden Cole (2014), Ryan Gieseler (2010), Jaisen Gill (2018), Evan Greer (2012), Patrick O’Keefe (2008), Justin Pender (2008)
