Three GDI Goalies have been named to Hockey Canada's Program Of Excellence Goaltending Camp.
Hockey Canada’s national men’s team program has its sights set on next season, extending invitations to 34 goaltenders to its annual Program of Excellence Goaltending Camp – taking place June 9-12 at the Markin MacPhail Centre in Calgary.
The camp brings together some of best netminding talent in the nation with top Canadian instructors from across North America, and kicks off the evaluation period for summer development and selection camps at the under-17, under-18, and under-20 levels.
Candidates for inclusion in Canada’s National Junior Team summer development camp include 10 of the top under-20 talent. Meanwhile, eight Canada National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team hopefuls are also set to take part, and 16 contenders in the under-17 group.
“The Program of Excellence Goaltending Camp has allowed us to develop our top talent - both on and off the ice, using world-class goaltending instructors from across North America,” said Scott Salmond, Hockey Canada’s vice-president of hockey operations and men’s national teams. “The line-up of instructors are able to breakdown each goalie’s game, sharpen their skills and give them every opportunity to develop their talent and grow as a player.”
