Team Canada named its roster Friday morning for the Women's U18 World Championship scheduled for HarborCenter next month.
Three players return from last year's squad which won the gold medal -- forwards Samantha Cogan and Sarah Potomak with Micah Hart at defense.
Among those on the roster is forward Sarah Quaranto of Niagara Falls, Ont.
The team will have pre-competition camp in London, Ont., playing exhibition games on Jan. 1-2 against Carleton University.
Canada opens the tournament against the U.S. at 7 p.m. Jan. 5. The eight-team tournament runs through Jan. 12.
The U.S. named its roster earlier this month.
