McGovern & Thiessen Invited To Hockey Canada's Summer Showcase

GDI Goalies Duncan McGovern and Matthew Thiessen have been invited to attend Hockey Canada's Summer Showcase!

The top 196 players in Canada have been invited to attend men’s camps as part of the National Teams’ Summer Showcase from July 26-Aug. 6.

In its second summer, the National Teams’ Summer Showcase will bring together Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team selection camp (44 players) and Canada’s national under-17 development camp (111 players) in Calgary, at the Markin MacPhail Centre from July 26-Aug. 2. Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek Summer Development Camp (41 players) will be hosted in Toronto July 30-Aug. 2, and will feature a four-game series against the Finland, Sweden and the United States from Aug. 3-6 in Plymouth, Mich.

Ryan Jankowski, director of player personnel for Hockey Canada, was responsible for all player selections, with assistance from regional scouts Carl Bouchard (Quebec), Barclay Branch (Ontario), Wade Klippenstein (West), Kevin Mitchell (Atlantic), and Darrell Woodley (Ontario) for the under-17 roster along with branch representatives, and with input from coaches and general managers from across the Canadian Hockey League for the under-18 and under-20 rosters.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase the talent we have across the country, and for our coaches and scouts to evaluate the players in our programs,” said Scott Salmond, Hockey Canada’s vice-president of hockey operations and national teams. “These camps are key in selecting our international teams for the 2016-17 season, and we are looking forward to hosting 196 players as they work towards their ultimate goal of wearing the maple leaf.”

Canada’s national under-17 development camp

From July 26-Aug. 1, 111 players – 12 goaltenders, 36 defenceman and 63 forwards – will participate in practices and games on one of six teams: Black, Blue, Gold, Green, Red, and White.

Following the development camp, players will continue to be evaluated through the early season before 66 are selected to represent Canada on one of three national teams – Team Canada Black, Team Canada Red, and Team Canada White – at the 2016 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, which is scheduled for Oct. 30-Nov. 5 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.

This year, 110 players have been drafted or listed by CHL teams, including 42 from the Ontario Hockey League, 40 from the Western Hockey League and 28 from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Hughson Joins Pronghorns

Garret Hughson came home to finish his junior hockey career, and he’s pretty much staying to go to school.

The Foremost goaltender has committed to the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns, according to a press release from the Brooks Bandits Monday.

“Lethbridge was a good fit for me because they are an organization on the rise that needed a starting goalie,” said Hughson in the release. “It’s going to be nice to be close to home, get an education, and continue playing hockey.”

After finishing his minor hockey in Medicine Hat, Hughson had success playing in the WHL for Spokane but wound up in the OHL to start his final season. At the trade deadline in January the Bandits acquired him, and went on to win the Alberta junior A title and compete at the RBC Cup.

Hughson had an amazing final few months in junior. He went 14-3 in the regular season after the trade with a 2.23 goals against average and three shutouts. In the playoffs —including the Western Canada Cup and RBC Cup — he was 19-4 and tied the AJHL record with four shutouts.

“Garret did an unbelievable job for us this season and gave our team a chance to win every night,” Bandits head coach and general manager Ryan Papaioannou said in the press release. “He was instrumental in our run to the RBC Cup and will leave the Bandits with one of the more memorable playoff performances in my time.”

Hughson is the 18th Bandits player from this past season to have a post-secondary spot lined up.

Hughson has trained with GDI by travelling to Winnipeg to work through 1v1 lessons. GDI President Ryan Cyr is also the goaltending coach of the Spokane Chiefs where Hughson spent the majority of his junior hockey career.
