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.
