It hasn’t been much of an off-season for five members of the Cantonniers de Magog, who are following up their TELUS Cup silver medal with a trip to U17 development camp.
U17 camp introduces players to the Canadian Way, but for Kyle Aucoin and Jacob Perreault it’s more like a reintroduction.
Which CHL team has the most picks at U17 camp? Who led U18 campers in scoring? Take a closer look at the men’s Showcase.
Brett Gibson, Louis Robitaille and Dennis Williams will lead Canada White, Canada Red and Canada Black, respectively.
A record-setting 23 first-round picks, from six countries, highlighted the 88 U17 alumni selected at the NHL Entry Draft.
The list includes players from nine provinces, and 53 who were taken in the first round of their respective CHL drafts.
Martin Mondou, Alan Millar and Steve Staios will oversee Canada’s U17, U18 and U20 programs, respectively, next season.
The tournament will open with a classic rivalry as Team Canada Red faces Russia in prime-time on Nov. 3 in Quispamsis.
