CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Hockey League, has announced that the fifth-annual Program of Excellence goaltending camp will be held at Norma Bush Arena in Calgary from June 17-20.

Fourteen goaltenders – nine in the under-20 age category (candidates for the National Junior Team) and five in the under-18 category (candidates for the National Men's Under-18 Team) – will get the opportunity to work with a number of instructors during the four-day camp.

All 14 goaltenders were selected by Hockey Canada based on evaluations done by head scout Al Murray during the 2009-10 season and in consultation with coaches, general managers and team officials throughout the CHL.
