CALGARY – Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Hockey League, has announced that the third annual Program of Excellence (POE) goaltending camp will be held at the Father David Bauer Olympic Arena in Calgary, AB from June 12-15.

Twelve goaltenders – eight in the under-20 age category (candidates for the National Junior Team) and four in the under-18 category (candidates for the National Men’s Under-18 Team) – will get the opportunity to work with Corey Hirsch, Hockey Canada’s goaltending consultant, and a number of other instructors during the four-day camp.

All 12 goaltenders were selected by Hockey Canada based on evaluations done by Hirsch and Hockey Canada head scout Al Murray during the 2007-08 season and in consultation with coaches, general managers and team officials throughout the Canadian Hockey League and National Hockey League.
