Canada, Finland, Sweden and the United States are set to gather for a mid-summer camp, which is generally viewed as a development camp in preparation for the 2018 World Junior Hockey Championship held after the holidays at the end of the Calendar year.
The Camp, held in Plymouth, Michigan, will run from July 28 through Aug. 5 and includes 12 international competitions between the four nations. For the Flyers, three players have been invited from two of the nations.
Hockey Canada invited a total of 40 players, who will all be looking to earn an invitation to December's final selection camp and eventually be apart of the team to compete for gold at the Championships, which will take place in Buffalo, NY.
Flyers goaltending prospect Carter Hart is among the invitees and is looking to become the starter for the second straight year for Canada. Hart earned a silver medal for Canada at the 2017 World Junior Championships as an 18-year-old.
He started in the gold medal game, where he stopped 31 shots, and four of five players in the shootout, but fell to the U.S. by a 5-4 score. Overall, he went 3-0-1 with a 2.38 goals-against average & .906 save percentage in his first WJC Tournament.
Also attending the camp for the Flyers is the second overall pick in the draft, center Nolan Patrick, but he will not be participating in the on-ice portion as he continues the rehab process from his surgery on June 13.
