44 OHF Players Invited to National Under-17 Development Camp
Submitted By OHF on Monday, June 11, 2018
CAMBRIDGE, Ont. and CALGARY, Alta. – 44 players from the Ontario Hockey Federation have been invited by Hockey Canada to participate in Canada’s national under-17 development camp, set to take place July 21-27 at the Markin MacPhail Centre at WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.

The week-long camp will see players – 12 goaltenders, 36 defencemen, and 63 forwards - split into six teams for on- and off-ice training, fitness testing, practices, intrasquad games and classroom sessions.

“The national under-17 development camp provides a unique opportunity for players to learn about what it takes to be part of Team Canada alongside the best young talent in the country,” said Shawn Bullock, Hockey Canada’s senior manager of hockey operations and men’s national teams. “The players are here with the ultimate goal of wearing the Team Canada jersey in international competition, and we are supporting them in that goal by providing the on- and off-ice experiences they need to develop and grow as high-performance athletes.”

Ontario - OHF, Hockey Northwestern Ontario and Hockey Eastern Ontario – contributed 47% of participants for the 2018 roster. This year, all 111 players have been drafted by Canadian Hockey League teams – including 54 from the Ontario Hockey League.

Following the development camp, players will continue to be evaluated through the early season before 66 are named to one of three Canadian national teams – Team Canada Black, Team Canada Red, and Team Canada White – who will compete at the 2018 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge scheduled for Nov. 3-10 in Saint John and Quispamsis, N.B.

Selections from Team ALLIANCE, include: Matt Onuska (Waterloo Wolves), George Diaco (London Jr. Knights) and Matthew Maggio (Sun County Panthers) - congratulations and best of luck in Calgary!
