VANCOUVER, BC – Hockey Canada’s 2006 World Junior team prospects will have the ultimate team building opportunity when they tee it up with Men’s Olympic Team stars and Canadian hockey management and alumni on August 16th at the World Junior Championship Golf Tournament, presented by Nike Golf, at Northview Golf and Country Club.

Canada’s national men’s hockey program rarely sees the valuable opportunity to mix Junior prospects with their hockey idols, but the conclusion of Canada’s 2006 World Junior Championship evaluation camp and the beginning of Canada's Men’s Olympic Orientation Camp presented a unique possibility in Vancouver.

“This tournament is evolving into great event and we are pleased to add this fantastic day to a long list of quality events associated with the 2006 IIHF World Junior Championship,” said Tournament Co-chair and Olympic Team Head Coach Pat Quinn. “Our intention is to host a tournament that will present a once-in-a-lifetime chance for the lucky hockey fans who get involved in the fivesomes, while providing our World Junior Prospects with the valuable opportunity to spend one-on-one time with our Canadian Men’s team prospects.”

Tournament co-chairs Pat Quinn, Steve Tambellini and many of Canada’s hockey legends will be participating in what will be an unforgettable day. Approximately 55 teams, consisting of three public players and two hockey celebrities will play on Northview’s Ridge and Canal courses, with proceeds going to minor hockey associations across Canada.

A limited number of teams are available for $4,500, with proceeds going to minor hockey associations across Canada.  Interested parties should call 604-899-7846 for information.

The 2006 IIHF World Junior Championship will begin on with the reigning champion Team Canada hosting Finland at the Pacific Coliseum. General Motors Place will host the medal round games with the Gold Medal Game being played on Thursday, .

The 2006 IIHF World Junior Championship Organizing Committee is committed to delivering a spectacular celebration of the world’s best amateur hockey players. We will elevate our community spirit and showcase Canadian hospitality and pride. Our success will create a lasting legacy for Canadian amateur hockey and will demonstrate our ability to host elite international events.
