RED DEER - Eighty 2004-born male athletes from across Alberta are about to take the next step in Hockey Alberta’s Team Alberta program.
Invitations have been extended to the players to attend the Team Alberta U16 Male Summer Camp July 1-7 in Red Deer, which is the next step in the selection process for the 2019 WHL Cup in Calgary.
"We saw an outstanding level of talent at the 2019 Alberta Cup in Red Deer," said Michael Kraichy, Manager of Team Alberta. "It wasn’t an easy task for our staff to select the eighty players to attend Summer Camp, but we’re excited to see what this group can show us as they move forward in the Team Alberta process.
The list includes eight goalies, 24 defence, and 48 forwards. The selection process is based on the Team Alberta scouting process throughout the 2018-19 season, as well as the 2019 Alberta Cup in Red Deer in April. From the Summer Camp, a shortlist will be established, with those players scouted with their club teams until the 20 players who will comprise the roster for Team Alberta are named.
