Regina Pats forward Austin Wagner is one of the first cuts by the Canadian national junior team.
Following a game against University all-stars on Tuesday, the team made four cuts with Wagner being one of them. Another cut was Moose Jaw Warriors forward Brett Howden.
Wagner, who has 14 goals and 13 assists in 23 games this year, was one of two Pats trying to crack the team with the other one being Sam Steel who survived the first round of cuts.
It is expected Wagner and Howden will oppose one another Friday night when the Pats and Warriors square off in Moose Jaw.
The World Juniors begin on Boxing Day.
