CALGARY, ALBERTA – Hockey Canada in conjunction with Orca Bay Sports and Entertainment are pleased to announce Team Canada Hockey Day in Vancouver, BC on August 15th involving both the National Junior Camp players and the Men’s Olympic Orientation Camp players.

On Monday, August 15, General Motors Place in Vancouver, BC will be host to a practice for NHL players attending the National Men’s Olympic Orientation Camp starting at 5:00pm PDT followed by a Red versus White National Junior Team Camp intersquad game at 7:30pm PDT.

The NHL players attending the four day Olympic Orientation camp in Kelowna, BC from August 17-20 will gather in Vancouver where they will have their first practice on August 15 at GM Place. Head Coach Pat Quinn along with the rest of the coaching staff will run the practice with the 36 NHL players announced on .

The Red versus White intersquad game for the Junior players will be the final day of a five day development camp that will run in Whistler, BC, August 10-14 and conclude in Vancouver on August 15 and 16. This camp will have 44 of Canada’s best junior aged players (born in 1986 and 1987) competing for a spot on the National Junior team that will play host to the 2006 IIHF World Junior Championship being held in Vancouver, Kelowna, and Kamloops, BC, December 26, 2005 – January 5, 2006.

“We are thrilled to be able to put on such a unique event in Vancouver,” stated Hockey Canada President Bob Nicholson. “The fans will be able to come out and support Canuck Place and amateur hockey programs across Canada and watch some of the best players in the world. This will be a great preview of the international hockey scheduled this year with the IIHF World Junior Championships in Vancouver and the Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy.”

Tickets for the event will be available through pre-sale to all Vancouver Canucks, Vancouver Giants, and 2006 World Junior Championship ticket holders from July 27-29. Tickets for the general public will be on sale starting July 30 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Ticket prices for the event will be $20 for the lower bowl, and $15 for the upper bowl (plus service charges). Net proceeds from the event will go to the Canucks For Kids Fund in support of Canuck Place and Hockey Canada/Canadian Hockey Foundation.

On Tuesday, August 16, the two teams will get together for the 2006 World Junior Golf Tournament presented by Nike Golf at Northview Golf and Country Club in Surrey, BC. Fifty-five teams made up three hockey supporters and two hockey celebrities will make up the field for the event.

At the conclusion of the golf tournament, the Men’s team will travel to Kelowna, BC for the remainder of their camp and the National Junior Team players will depart to their respective cites.
