The National Hockey League Players' Association announced the names of 42 selected bantam-aged players who will participate in the third annual Allstate All-Canadians Mentorship Camp.

The invitation-only camp will be held at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, Ontario from August 6th to 10th, 2013. The intensive five-day camp will conclude with the Allstate All-Canadians Mentorship Cup on Saturday, August 10th at 1pm et/10am pt (TSN and TSN Mobile TV).

"The NHLPA has made a strong commitment to sharing the Players' knowledge and experience with Canada's youth through the Allstate All-Canadians program. This is our third year in working to develop a program that will help educate not only the 42 bantam-aged players that are directly involved, but also parents and young hockey players across the country," said Mathieu Schneider, NHLPA Special Assistant to the Executive Director. "The NHL Players and the ambassadors involved are true professionals and have an enormous amount of experience to share through this program."

Players attending the five-day camp will learn the necessary steps to support budding hockey skills through fundamental factors including appropriate nutrition, fitness, on-ice training and mental skills. Throughout the camp, the participants and their families will have the opportunity to learn from some of the NHL's brightest stars, as well as camp ambassadors such as Dr. Paul Dennis (Sport Psychologist), Dave Lewis (NHL Assistant Coach), and renowned off-ice training expert, Gary Roberts.

"Each year I look forward to sharing my story and experiences throughout my 21-year NHL career and the role that fitness and nutrition played in my success," said Gary Roberts. "I feel strongly about the importance of educating young players and their families about developing skill sets that will improve performance both on and off the ice and advance them to the next level in their careers and I look forward to continuing this tradition."

Last year's camp featured 22 first-round draft picks from the OHL and WHL, including first overall picks Connor McDavid, Travis Konecny and Mathew Barzal . The QMJHL draft is set to take place on June 8th, 2013, and will feature eight eligible All-Canadians players from 2012, including, Nicolas Roy, the number one rated prospect by QMJHL Central Scouting.
