CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Hockey League, announced Wednesday roster changes to Canada’s National Junior Team summer development camp, set for Aug. 4-10 in Brossard, Que., and Lake Placid, N.Y.

Four players, forwards Jonathan Drouin (Huberdeau, Que./Halifax, QMJHL) and Nathan MacKinnon (Cole Harbour, N.S./Halifax, QMJHL), and defencemen Griffin Reinhart (West Vancouver, B.C./Edmonton, WHL) and Morgan Rielly (West Vancouver, B.C./Moose Jaw, WHL), will attend camp in Brossard but will not accompany the team for exhibition games in Lake Placid.

With the eligible returning forwards not participating in the games, forwards Mark Jankowski (Dundas, Ont./Providence College, HE) and Brendan Leipsic (Winnipeg, Man./Portland, WHL) have been added to the summer development camp roster. The players have been added by members of the Program of Excellence management group, including Sean Burke, Bruce Hamilton, senior director of hockey operations/national teams Scott Salmond and head scout Ryan Jankowski, along with head coach Brent Sutter, who has the final decision on all player personnel decisions.
