CALGARY, ALBERTA - Twenty-eight players of the forty players that will be invited have been selected to attend Canada's National Women's Team Evaluation Camp October 5-12 in Toronto, ON, the Canadian Hockey Association announced today.

The evaluation camp roster includes 16 members of the 1999 World Championship Team which captured Canada's fifth consecutive gold medal at the 1999 World Women's Hockey Championship in Espoo, Finland.

The coaching staff expects to add 12 more players to this Evaluation Camp Roster, which will include players from the National Under 22 Team, along with other possible candidates from the evaluation camps that were held this past spring. The National Under 22 Program is designed to provide players with an opportunity to experience international competition, on the international ice surface and to experience everything that international hockey encompasses such as international travel, different playing styles and international officiating.

"The players named today have demonstrated great ability and skill through past competitions and the spring evaluation camps," said Mel Davidson, head coach of the National Women's Team. "Once we have finalized the complete roster, we feel confident we will have an outstanding blend of youth and experience for the coaching staff to evaluate,"

The final 40 player evaluation camp roster will be named in August.

"The coaching staff has a difficult task in selecting the final 12 players," added Ga‘tan Robitaille, General Manager, Women's High Performance. "The Under 22 program helps identify up and coming talent in women's hockey in Canada, with the ultimate goal of each player being eventually selected to the National Team."

Upcoming events for Canada's National Women's Team include the 3 Nations Cup in December, a final selection camp and tour in January and the 2000 World Women's Hockey Championship in Mississauga, Ontario in April, 2000. The final roster for the World Championship will be announced in February, 2000.
