June 26, 2013, Prince Albert SK (ISN) – Four Prince Albert Raiders have been invited to Team Pacific’s Summer Development Camp in preparation for the upcoming 2014 World Under-17 Challenge in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
Goaltender Nick McBride, defenceman Brendan Guhle and forwards Matteo Gennaro and Dylan Stewart will be battling for spots to represent their region, as the top-46 players from the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta converge in Calgary at the end of July.
The four prospects, all of whom were drafted by the Raiders in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft, will attempt follow in the footsteps of current Raiders Josh Morrissey, Shane Danyluk and Mike Winther who have represented Team Pacific at previous tournaments.
Following the camp, players will be scouted with their club teams until the official roster is announced in November.
The Under-17 program is the first step in Hockey Canada’s Program of Excellence. Many players who compete at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge go on to represent Canada with the National Men’s Under-18 Team, National Junior Team and National Men’s Team.
