Islanders prospects named to 35-man roster of candidates for Canada\'s World Junior Championship squad

CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Hockey League, announced Friday that Islanders prospects Griffin Reinhart and Adam Pelech are part of a roster of 35 players who have been invited to Canada’s National Junior Team summer development camp, set for Aug. 4-10 in Brossard, Que., and Lake Placid, N.Y.

Canada’s roster, comprised of three goaltenders, 12 defencemen and 20 forwards, was selected by Ryan Jankowski, head scout of the men’s Program of Excellence for Hockey Canada, along with Hockey Canada senior director of hockey operations and national teams Scott Salmond and the newly-formed Program of Excellence management group including Sean Burke and Bruce Hamilton.

Jankowski will continue to monitor these players and other potential candidates during the first few months of the 2013-14 season and at the CHL Super Series to determine who will be invited to Canada’s National Junior Team selection camp in December. In total, 22 players will be selected to represent Canada at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship, Dec. 26, 2013 to Jan. 5, 2014 in Malmö, Sweden.

Canada’s National Junior Team will gather in Brossard at the Montreal Canadiens’ practice facility for two practices on Aug. 4 and 5 before travelling to Lake Placid, N.Y., for exhibition games against Finland (Aug. 7), Sweden (Aug. 8) and the United States (Aug. 10).

A number of the players on the summer development camp roster will be front and centre at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft on June 30 in New Jersey, where many are expected to be selected in the first and second rounds.
