October 15, 2012

CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada announced Monday that Canada’s National Sledge Team will hold a training camp at Cominco Arena in Trail, B.C., from Oct. 21-27. Twenty players have been invited and will take part in the camp, which will determine the 16-player roster for the 2012-13 season.

“We are looking forward to getting on the ice for training camp” said Mike Mondin, head coach of Canada’s National Sledge Team. “Being from Trail, I know the city is excited to welcome our players and staff to Kootenays for the week.”

The roster announced for camp includes 15 players who won gold at the 2011 World Sledge Hockey Challenge in Calgary last December and bronze at last April’s IPC Sledge Hockey World Championship in Hamar, Norway.

The players will be on the ice a total of nine times in six days in Trail, with on-ice sessions open to the public. The City of Trail provided the ice rental at the Cominco Arena at no cost for the camp.

During the 2012-13 season, Canada’s National Sledge Team will compete in the 2012 World Sledge Hockey Challenge, Dec. 2-8 in Calgary, a three-game series against the United States in Ottawa in February and the IPC World Sledge Hockey Championship in April in Goyang, South Korea.

NOTE TO MEDIA: Keegan Goodrich, Hockey Canada’s coordinator of media relations, will be on-site and can assist with media requests. He can be reached at or (403) 519-5754.
