The native of Mannville, AB won a silver medal with Canada's National Junior Team at the 1999 World Junior Hockey Championship. At the 2002 World Championship, Calder will be joining Brad Ference and Brenden Morrow, who were teammates with Team Canada at the 1999 World Junior Championship.

Canada's roster now stands at 21 players (2 goaltenders, 7 defensemen and 12 forwards).
