Hockey Canada on Monday announced defenseman Slater Koekkoek has been added to the team's summer junior development camp.
The camp will run Aug. 3-10, with the first two days held in Brossard, Quebec. The final five days will be spent in Lake Placid, N.Y., where the team will practice and play exhibition games against teams from the United States, Sweden and Finland as part of USA Hockey's National Junior Evaluation Camp.
The summer camp is the first step in filling out the roster that will play for Canada at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship, which will be held Dec. 26 to Jan. 5, 2014, in Malmo, Sweden. Canada finished fourth at last year's tournament, the first time since 1998 that Canada failed to win a medal at the elite under-20 international tournament.
