Two of college hockey’s top freshmen – Boston University defenseman Dante Fabbro and North Dakota forward Tyson Jost – are among the 32 players invited to Canada’s World Junior Championship selection camp, Hockey Canada announced Tuesday.

Fabbro and Jost – teammates last season on the BCHL’s Penticton Vees – were both first-round picks in the 2016 NHL Draft.

Canada’s selection camp will take place Dec. 10-14 in Blainville, Que. At the conclusion of the camp, 22 players will be selected to represent Canada in the 2017 World Junior Championship that will be held in Toronto and Montreal.

Fabbro has 6 points in 12 games for Boston University this fall, highlighted by a one-goal, two-assist effort in his last outing, last Tuesday against Harvard. The Nashville Predators draft pick leads all NCAA freshmen defensemen with 3 power-play goals, ranks tied for seventh at +7 and eighth with 29 shots on goal.

Jost, a Colorado pick, has averaged a point per game though 15 games at North Dakota (5 goals, 10 assists). His 51 shots on goal rank second among all freshmen and his +9 rating ranks tied for sixth.

Fabbro’s BU teammate, Brandon Hickey, was the lone NCAA representative on the Canadian World Junior roster last season.
