League-High Five Isles Get Camp Invite

   
Less than a week after the 2008 NHL Entry Draft completed, a league-high five Islanders prospects, including four drafted last weekend, were invited to attend the Canadian Junior Development Camp in Ottawa from July 25-29. The next closest teams are Carolina, Tampa Bay and Los Angeles, which are each sending three players.

Josh Bailey (2008, 1st round), Travis Hamonic (2008, 2nd round), Mark Katic (selected in 2007 in the third round), Jared Spurgeon (2008, 6th round) and Corey Trivino (2008, 2nd round) will be at the Islanders Prospect Camp from July 14-20 at Islanders Iceworks before traveling north to join the top 45 junior-aged Canadians as a lead up to final selections for the 2009 World Junior Championship in December.

"It is great to see our draft picks be represented at the Team Canada World Junior Evaluation Camp," said Assistant General Manager and Director of Amateur Scouting Ryan Jankowski. "It goes to show that they are all elite level players and deserve to be able to prove themselves in what historically is a very competitive camp. I am looking forward to seeing them participate in Ottawa."

Katic has spent the past three season with the Sarnia Sting of the OHL. In an injury-shortened 2007-08 season, Katic finished 5-26-31 in 45 games and ranked second among Sarnia defensemen with a +11 rating.

Bailey, chosen ninth overall by the Islanders in 2008, finished third in the OHL in assists (67) and tenth in the league in points (96) in 2007-08. An alternate captain for Windsor, the center was selected to play in the 2008 OHL All-Star Classic and tallied two goals at the 2008 CHL Top Prospects Game.

As a center for Stouffville of the Ontario Provincial Junior 'A' Hockey League, Trivino ranked first on the team in assists (50) and second in points (69) in 2007-08. On the international scene, Trivino won a silver medal at the 2007 World Junior 'A' Challenge with Team Canada East, captured a Gold Medal with Team Ontario at the 2007 Canada Winter Games, and took home the Gold at the 2008 World Under-18 Championship, where he tied for the team lead with four goals.

Hamonic, a defenseman, has played for the Moose Jaw Warriors of the WHL the past two seasons and finished with five goals and 17 assists for 22 points with 101 penalty minutes in 61 games in 2007-08. Hamonic won Gold with Team Canada at the Under-18 World Championships in 2008. He also helped lead Team Manitoba to a Silver Medal at the 2007 Canada Winter Games.

Spurgeon recently completed his third season with Spokane of the QMJHL. He led Spokane defensemen in goals (12), assists (31), and points (43).
 
The National Junior Team development camp is the first step in a process that Hockey Canada follows to name Canada’s National Junior Team roster in December. Following this July camp, Hockey Canada will continue to monitor and evaluate these players and other eligible players in the CHL, as well as in the junior and college ranks in Canada and the United States.

In late November or early December, Hockey Canada will invite a shorter list of players to the National Junior Team selection camp, which will take place in mid-December in Ottawa. During the selection camp in December, the coaching staff will select the 22 players that will represent Canada at the 2009 IIHF World Junior Championship in Ottawa. 

The players invited to the National Junior Team development camp were identified, evaluated and selected by Hockey Canada head scout Al Murray, based on performances on under-17, under-18 and national junior teams at 2007-08 events, with input from the coaches on Canada’s 2007-08 National Junior Team and National Men’s Under-18 Team and a network of coaches and general managers in the Canadian Hockey League.
