Plymouth, Saginaw players off to summer camps

The Plymouth Whalers and Saginaw Spirit have announced that four of their players have been invited to attend summer development camps held by Hockey Canada.

Saginaw defenseman T.J. Brodie has been invited to attend the Team Canada Development Camp in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to be held from August 5-10.

Plymouth goalie Matt Hackett (pictured) and Saginaw netminder Edward Pasquale have been chosen to participate in the Team Canada Program of Excellence goaltending camp to be held from June 11-14 in Calgary.

Both camps above serve as the preliminary method of evaluation used in determining the roster for Canada’s National Junior Team that will be participating in the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Whalers rookie Tyler Seguin has been named to Canada's National Men's Summer U-18 Team Selection Camp roster. Forty of Canada’s top under-18 players will gather in Calgary from August 1-4 for the camp, hoping to earn one of 22 roster spots and help Canada defend its summer gold at the Ivan Hlinka Tournament in the Czech Republic and Slovakia on August 11-15.
