The camp will take place in Rokycany, Czech Republic (an hour north of Prague), starting Dec. 10.

Plutnar will fly out of Prince George on Dec. 8 following a pair of games against the Cougars.

The WJC will be held in Malmö, Sweden on Dec. 26-Jan. 5. The Czech Republic is in Group A with the United States, Canada, Slovakia and Germany. The Czech Republic finished fifth last year.
