WINNIPEG, MB -- Forward Tyler Rennette of Powassan, ON and a member of the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League suffered a mild concussion on Wednesday in practice at the 1999 National Junior Team Summer Evaluation camp and will return home today as a result, head coach George Burnett announced Wednesday.

Rennette's spot on the 41-player evaluation camp roster will be filled by Michael Henrich of the OHL's Barrie Colts. Burnett said Henrich was expected to arrive at the training camp on Thursday morning, in time for practice and the second day of intrasquad games. Henrich, selected by the Edmonton Oilers in the first round of the NHL's Entry Draft, scored 41 goals and added 22 assists for 63 points in Barrie in 1997-98.

During a morning practice session, Rennette was checked into the boards and struck his head, causing a Grade 1 concussion. Team physician Dr. Brian Shamess advised the coaching staff that, as a precaution, Rennette should not continue training with the National Junior team. Dr. Shamess also indicated that Rennette should recover completely from the mishap.

The National Junior Team camp continues until Sunday, with the split Red and White squads practising Thursday, Saturday and Sunday and playing intra-squad games the same days.

The camp is the first stage in the process of assembling the team that will represent Canada at the 1999 World Junior Hockey Championship in Winnipeg and surrounding cities from Dec. 26 - Jan. 5. About 32 players will be invited to the selection camp from Dec. 12-18, with 22 players being chosen to play for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship.

Canada has won a record 10 World titles, including seven of the last nine, including five in a row from 1993-97.
