Two Lethbridge Hurricanes are among a dozen Western Hockey League players heading to Canada’s national junior team summer development camp.
Those include forward Dylan Cozens and defenceman Calen Addision.
Addison attended the Team Canada camps last year as well, but wasn’t selected for the final roster. Cozens meanwhile, is expected to be selected in the top ten in Friday’s NHL draft in Vancouver. If that happens, Cozens would make history, becoming the highest-ever drafted Lethbridge Hurricanes player.
The group of WHL talent is led by WHL and Canadian Hockey League Defenceman of the Year Ty Smith (New Jersey Devils) of the Spokane Chiefs and features six forwards and five defencemen. Defencemen Calen Addison (Pittsburgh Penguins) of the Lethbridge Hurricanes and Jett Woo (Vancouver Canucks) of the Calgary Hitmen, as well as forward Cole Fonstad (Montreal Canadiens) of the WHL Champion Prince Albert Raiders represent the three other players already selected in the NHL Draft.
The camp starts in late July in Plymouth, Michigan.
