Three Jets prospects to attend Canada's WJC development camp

by Staff Writer / Winnipeg Jets

Three Winnipeg Jets 2013 draft picks are packing their bags to head to Quebec for the 2014 Hockey Canada summer development camp.

Defenceman Josh Morrissey (13th overall), forward Nic Petan (43rd overall) and goaltender Eric Comrie (59th overall), are part of the group of 37 Canadian junior hopefuls who have been invited to attend the week-long summer camp that will run Aug. 3-10th. The first two days are 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.

Brent Sutter, who coached Canada to gold medals at the 2005 and 2006 tournaments, will coach this year's team.
