Jonah Imoo became the first goalie to post two shutouts at the World Junior A Challenge last week in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

The Surrey native was one of three players from the BC Hockey League (BCHL) with local connections to play for Canada West, which won a silver medal at the six-tam international tournament.

Canada West lost 6-3 to the United States of America in the championship game Sunday.

Imoo, a goaltender with the Powell River Kings, made 20 saves for the shutout in a 7-0 victory over the Czech Republic to open the tournament. After backstopping Canada West to a 4-3 win over Russia, he needed to make 17 saves for his second shutout, a 1-0 win over Canada East in the tournament semifinal.

He was also in goal for the championship game, and was named to the tournament all-star team.

Surrey Eagles defenceman Devon Toews collected one assist in the tournament.

Forward Brandon Morley of the Coquitlam Express was also  on the Canada West squad. He began this season with the Eagles before a trade sent him to Coquitlam.
