Hockey Canada has announced the roster of players who will be attending this summer’s National Junior Team development camp.

The camp will run from July 27 to Aug. 4 in Plymouth, MI., and will include exhibition games against Finland, Sweden and the United States.

Canada’s camp roster will feature 43 total players, including five goaltenders, 13 defencemen and 25 forwards. Six of the players were on Canada’s roster for the 2019 tournament and eight of them won gold with Canada’s under-18 team at the 2018 Hlinka Gretzky Cup.

“We’re very pleased with the group that will be brought together in Plymouth,” said Shawn Bullock, director of men’s national teams in a press release. “This is a development opportunity for some of the younger athletes, and it’s a great opportunity for our coaching staff and players to start developing a solid relationship ahead of the World Juniors.”

The 2020 World Juniors are being hosted by Ostrava and Trinec, Czech Republic and begin on Dec. 26.
