by Torie Peterson / Calgary Flames

Calgary Flames prospect Tyler Parsons closed out his time at the 2016 USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp with a 35-save performance in a 5-1 USA win over Canada.

The 18-year-old, who was selected 54th overall in the 2016 NHL Draft, played the full game in the final contest at the camp.

The only goal Parsons allowed came in the third period when Nicolas Roy was able to beat him five-hole with a backhand shot in the slot.

In total, Parsons appeared in four games at the camp, making 54 saves on 58 shots and recording a 2.06 GAA and a .931 save percentage.

The Chesterfield, MI native is coming off a Memorial Cup-winning season with the London Knights. He held a 37-9-3 record, a 2.33 GAA and a .921 save percentage in the regular season. In the playoffs, he went 16-1-1 with a 2.15 GAA and a .925 save percentage.

Two other Flames' 2016 draft picks were in action in Saturday's game; defenceman Adam Fox, selected in the third round, played for the USA and forward Dillon Dube, a second round draft pick, dressed for Canada.

Fox played in five games at the camp, picking up two assists and putting six shots on net. The Jericho, NY product is headed to Harvard this fall after a historic year with the U.S. National Development Program. He set the program's single-season record for points by a defenceman with 59 points in 64 games.

Saturday's game was Dube's second contest at Hockey Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek Summer Development Camp. In the 2015-16 regular season, he scored 26 goals and 66 points in 65 skates with the Kelowna Rockets in the Western Hockey League. In Kelowna's deep playoff run this past spring, he scored two goals and seven points in 18 games.
