CALGARY, ALBERTA - Goaltender Drew MacIntyre, of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's Sherbrooke Castors, was added to Canada's National Junior Team development camp which will take place August 1 - 10, 2001 in Calgary, AB.
MacIntyre will be replacing Brent Krahn of the Calgary Hitmen. Krahn suffered a knee injury last season and is currently recovering from surgery, therefore, unable to attend the camp. MacIntyre, native of Charlottetown, PEI, was a member of Canada's 2000 Men's Under 18 Team which captured the Gold Medal at the Slovakia Cup Tournament.
In 50 games last year, MacIntyre, 6'1", 212 lb. goaltender, played 2045 minutes for the Castors posting a 3.20 GAA and .901 Save Percentage. He was selected by the Detroit Red Wings in the 4th round, 121st overall, in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.
Krahn will remain in consideration for the National Junior Team's Selection Camp in December, 2001. CHA Director of Scouting, Barry Trapp and three regional scouts will continue to monitor and evaluate the players at this week's development camp in Calgary, as well as others through the first half of the season to determine the players that will be invited to the December camp.
Forty-four players will be attending the National Junior Team's Development Camp being held at the Father David Bauer Olympic Arena in Calgary, AB. Ice sessions will be open to the public.
