CALGARY, Alberta – Hockey Canada has announced the 27 players who will attend Canada’s National Para Hockey Team training camp, set for Feb. 11-15 at the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex in Oakville, Ontario.

Four goaltenders, nine defence and 14 forwards – including 15 members of the team that won a silver medal at the 2023 World Para Hockey Championship - were selected by head coach Russ Herrington (Unionville, ON) and assistant coaches Mike Fountain (Gravenhurst, ON), Boris Rybalka (Vernon, BC) and Greg Westlake (Oakville, ON).

“This camp is an important step in our journey to the 2024 World Para Hockey Championship, and we are eager to get our group together and get back on the ice in Oakville,” Herrington said. “Our players have been working on establishing an identity and becoming Team Canada, and this camp will provide another opportunity to us to further instill those values with our high-performance athletes.”

The training camp will include practices, off-ice training and a trio of intrasquad games from Feb. 12-15, and will serve as an opportunity to evaluate and prepare for future international competitions.
