15 ALLIANCE Hockey Players and Alumni Invited to Hockey Canada POE Summer Showcase
CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada announced Tuesday the 194 players invited to attend the National Teams’ Summer Showcase from July 29-Aug. 6 at the Markin MacPhail Centre at WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park in Calgary. 
The inaugural National Teams’ Summer Showcase marks the first time Hockey Canada has brought together all three of Canada’s national men’s programs in the same city at the same time. It will include Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek Summer Development Camp (40 players), Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team selection camp (43 players) and Canada’s national under-17 development camp (111 players).

Ryan Jankowski, director of player personnel for Hockey Canada, was responsible for all player selection, with assistance from regional scouts Carl Bouchard (Quebec), Barclay Branch (Ontario), Wade Klippenstein (West), Kevin Mitchell (Atlantic) and Darrell Woodley (Ontario) for the under-17 roster, and with input from coaches and general managers from across the Canadian Hockey League for the under-18 and under-20 rosters.

 “This is a fantastic opportunity for these groups to learn from and inspire each other as they all come together in Calgary,” said Scott Salmond, Hockey Canada’s vice-president of hockey operations and national teams. “We are looking forward to hosting the 194 players as they work towards representing Canada in international competition.”

“I would like to congratulate all 194 players selected to attend the Hockey Canada National Teams’ Summer Showcase,” said Jankowski. “This is a tremendous opportunity for Canada’s top talent to show our coaches and scouts how they can help Canada succeed on the international stage.”
