CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Hockey League, will host Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team selection camp from July 31-August 3 at Father David Bauer Olympic Arena in Calgary.

Head coach George Burnett (Port Perry, Ont./Belleville, OHL), along with assistant coaches Ron Choules (Montreal, Que./Acadie-Bathurst, QMJHL) and Jim Hiller (Nelson, B.C./Tri-City, WHL), will lead the red and white teams through on-ice practices and three Red-White games. All on-ice sessions are open to the public free of charge.

At the conclusion of camp, the coaching staff, along with head scout Al Murray, will select a roster of 22 players to represent Canada at the 2010 Memorial of Ivan Hlinka from August 9-14 in Breclav, Czech Republic and Piestany, Slovakia. The final roster will be named the evening of August 3, and the team will depart for Europe the morning of August 4.

Hockey Canada and the CHL also announced one roster change, as defenceman Dillon Donnelly (Montreal, Que./Shawinigan, QMJHL) will not be available for the camp due to an injury. His spot on the selection camp roster will not be filled.

Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team is one of two men’s under-18 teams that Hockey Canada assembles during each season. A second men’s under-18 team will take part in the 2011 IIHF World Under-18 Championship in Germany in April 2011, and will be comprised of available players not involved in playoffs with their respective teams.

The under-18 program, along with the regional under-17 program and the national under-20 program, make up Hockey Canada’s Program of Excellence, which identifies, evaluates and develops players for international competition.
