Four Petes Prospects Invited to Canada's National Under-17 Development Camp
(Calgary, AB) - Hockey Canada announced today that Peterborough Petes prospects Donovan McCoy, Sam Alfano, Justin DeZoete, and Shawn Ramsey are four of 113 players invited to its virtual national under-17 development camp, set for July 19-25. Additionally, after working with Team Canada Red at the 2019 tournament, Petes video coach Noah Bucholtz returns as part of the coaching staff that will lead Canada's national men's under-17 teams at the 2020 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in Charlottetown and Summerside, PEI, in November.
12 goaltenders, 37 defencemen, and 64 forwards will be split into six teams for the week-long virtual camp, participating in a variety of sessions with a focus on player development through online education.
"The national under-17 development camp is the first stage in introducing these athletes to the Program of Excellence, and it is a great opportunity for them to develop as players and learn what it takes to wear the Maple Leaf," said Scott Salmond, senior vice-president of national teams with Hockey Canada.
