5 WHL GOALIES TO ATTEND HOCKEY CANADA CAMP
 

CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Hockey League, announced Thursday the 16 goaltenders that will attend the seventh-annual Program of Excellence goaltending camp at the WinSport Canada Athletic & Ice Complex in Calgary from June 7-10.

Sixteen goaltenders – 11 in the under-20 age category (candidates for Canada’s National Junior Team) and five in the under-18 category (candidates for Canada’s National Men’s Under-18 Team) – will get the opportunity to work with a number of instructors during the four-day camp.

All 16 goaltenders were selected by Hockey Canada based on evaluations done by head scout Kevin Prendergast and goaltending consultant Ron Tugnutt during the 2011-12 season and in consultation with coaches, general managers and team officials throughout the CHL.
