Charlottetown Islander prospect Lukas Cormier has been invited to Hockey Canada’s Under-17 Development Camp, which will take place next month in Calgary. Cormier was selected in the first round (fourth overall) in this year’s QMJHL Entry Draft.
In total 111 players were invited to the camp – 28 of whom have been drafted into the QMJHL.
The camp will be used to help determine which Canadian players will represent their country in November’s World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, which will take place in Saint John and Quispamsis. There will be three Canadian teams in the event.
“We are very excited that our top selection in this year’s draft has been recognized by Hockey Canada”, said Islanders Head Coach and General Manager Jim Holton. “We are looking forward to seeing Lukas compete at the highest level and bring that same drive and determination to the Islanders for many seasons.”
The Development Camp will take place July 21-27 at the Markin MacPhail Centre at WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.
