CALGARY, Alta. - Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Hockey League, announced Wednesday the 44 players who have been invited to attend Canada's National Men's Summer Under-18 Team selection camp that will be held from Aug. 2-5 at the Markin MacPhail Centre in Calgary, prior to selecting the team which will travel to Europe to compete in the 2014 U18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup.

The 2014 U18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup is scheduled for Aug. 11-16 in Breclav, Czech Republic and Piestany, Slovakia. Of the 44 players who have been invited to the selection camp, 22 will be selected for Canada's National Men's Summer Under-18 Team. Canada has won the summer under-18 tournament six consecutive years and nine of the last 10.

The camp roster includes 18 players from the Western Hockey League, 15 from the Ontario Hockey League, 10 from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and one who played U.S. high school hockey last season.

In total, 40 players (four goaltenders, 16 defencemen and 20 forwards) competed at the 2014 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, and three players (Mathew Barzal, Lawson Crouse and Travis Konecny) helped Canada's National Men's Under-18 Team win a bronze medal as under-agers at the 2014 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 World Championship in Lappeenranta and Imatra, Finland.

"It is always a challenge to select players given the depth of talent in Canada," Jankowski said. "As a staff, we will have difficult decisions to make, but our goal remains to select the best team, and to represent Canada proudly at this event."
