Hockey Canada today released their list of players invited to their selection camp for the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championships with Flyers prospects, forward Tyson Foerster and defenseman Mason Millman, among the players chosen.
Foerster was the Flyers first round pick (23rd overall) in this year's NHL Entry Draft and was signed to a three-year entry-level contract by the club on Oct. 14.
This past season, Foerster led the Barrie Colts in every offense category: goals (36), assists (44) and points (80), including power-play goals (18) and power-play assists (16) in 62 regular season games.
His 80 points were 33 more than the next closest teammate and were 57 more points than his rookie season when he had 23 points in 64 games.
Millman was the club's fourth round pick (103rd overall) in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. He recently completed his second full season in the Ontario Hockey League with the Saginaw Spirit where he posted 44 points (13g-31a) in 58 regular season games. His 13 goals and 44 points led Saginaw defensemen.
Millman also recorded a plus-minus rating of +31, which ranked second on the team's defense and fifth overall among all OHL defensemen.
The annual IIHF tournament will be held from December 25-January 5 in Edmonton, Alberta in a bubble format for all participating countries.
Flyers prospects, defenseman Cam York (14th overall - 2019) and forward Bobby Brink (34th overall - 2019), recently competed in Team USA's evaluation camp for the World Junior Championships. Both players were on the United State's 2020 World Junior team.
The Flyers have had at least four prospects compete in the tournament in the last seven years and at least one prospect has won a medal in each of the last eight years.
