CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada announced on Friday the 36 skaters (forwards and defencemen) who have been invited to the National Women's Under-22 Team selection camp, August 6-15 at the Mastercard Centre in Toronto, Ont.

The players were selected to be part of the selection camp based on evaluations done by Hockey Canada regional scouts during the 2009-10 season. These evaluations included performances with Canada's national team, under-18 and under-22 programs and their club teams, along with the National Women's Under-22 Team strength and conditioning camp in May in Calgary, among other criteria.

Four goaltenders will be selected for the camp following the National Women's Program goaltending camp, scheduled for August 1-5 at the Mastercard Centre.

The players attending camp are eligible to represent Canada at the 2011 MLP Cup in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland in early January. Canada has won the tournament seven times in eight years, losing just two games. Hockey Canada will use the camp to select 22 players for a three-game series against the United States' Women's Under-22 Select Team on August 18, 19 and 21 in Toronto.

Two players invited to camp, Rebecca Johnston and Marie-Philip Poulin, won a gold medal with Canada's National Women's Team at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, B.C., and two players, Brianne Jenner and Jennifer Wakefield, were centralized with Canada's National Women's Team prior to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games before joining Canada's National Women's Under-22 Team for the 2010 MLP Cup.

In addition, thirteen players (Bendus, Birchard, Bram, Deluce, Fortino, Jenner, Kohanchuk, Rougeau, Spooner, Wakefield, Watchorn, White, Wong) return from last year's National Women's Under-22 Team, while 11 members of Canada's gold medal-winning 2010 National Women's Under-18 Team (Armstrong, Bestland, Campbell, Cudmore, Daoust, Doyle, Lacquette, Poudrier, Rattray, Saulnier, Terry) will attend the camp.

The National Women's Under-22 Team selection camp will see the 36 skaters divided into two teams – Blue and Yellow – which will take part in practices and intersquad games. The camp will be held in conjunction with the National Women's Under-18 Team selection camp, and will see the U22 teams take on teams of U18 hopefuls – Red and White.
