Canada's national junior team could get some added size this winter for the 2012 World Junior Hockey Championship, as Hockey Canada announced Thursday that defenceman Jamie Oleksiak will be attending their summer development camp next Wednesday.

Oleksiak, who also signed on to play with Saginaw in the Ontario Hockey League this week, was taken 14th overall by the Dallas Stars in the NHL Entry Draft last month.

The 6'7", 240 pound native of Toronto played for the NCAA's Northeastern University Huskies last season, scoring four goals and 13 points in 38 games as a freshman.

Oleksiak has dual citizenship with the United States and Canada and recently turned down an invitation to the US World Junior Team Camp. He has previous international experience representing the United States in the 2009 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament.
