After a long Showcase weekend the Manitoba Junior Hockey League will conduct a one-day evaluation camp on October 7th at the MTS Iceplex. Forty top players from across the league will attend, with most players being 18 years of age. The purpose of the camp is to give the players a chance to highlight their skills with an opportunity to attend the World Junior A Challenge Selection camp hosted by Hockey Canada on October 28th in Calgary. The camp will feature two morning practices at 10:00 am and 11:30 am. An evening game featuring all 40 players will begin at 6:00 pm.

Goaltenders attending are:

  • Adam Iwan - Portage Terriers
  • Zach Rakochy - Steinbach Pistons
  • Spencer Tremblay - Waywaysseecappo
  • Byron Spriggs - Winnipeg Blues
All of the four goaltenders selected have trained with GDI Prairies extensively over the last several years in Midget and through Junior. The World Junior A Challenge (WJAC) 2012 will be held in Yarmouth, NS from November 5 – 11, 2012.
