“Our evaluation process through summer camp, the CHL season, Canada-Russia Series and now selection camp allows us to assess and assemble the top Canadian players to represent our country,” said Shawn Bullock, Hockey Canada’s director of men’s national teams. “Our final decisions will be difficult ones, but we couldn’t be more excited to gather in Victoria and begin the road to representing Canada in Vancouver.”

Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek Selection Camp will take place at the Q Centre in Victoria, B.C., and will feature a three-game series against a team of U SPORTS all-stars from December 12 to 14.
