I do hope that champions of Sweden, Finland, USHL and maybe CHL will participate in future.
Talking to the EJHL coach Sean Tremblay today it seem like the EJHL got the offer to go to participate late spring/early summer and officially accepted in June.

I think because it's a new tournament Hockey Canada and USA Hockey was in no rush to send their best. I have to think if a KHL junior team wins this a couple of times in a row, I think you see a CHL and USHL team go over
