The busy summer for Hockey Canada continues with Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team and Canada’s National Women’s Development Team selection camps on the ice in Calgary.

Here’s how it breaks down: 42 players will attend at development team camp beginning Aug. 2 before 42 U18 hopefuls gather three days later. After week-long camps, both teams will produce 22-player rosters for three-game series against the United States in Calgary from Aug. 16-19.

Take a closer look at Canada’s summer campers…
