LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles Kings center Michael Cammalleri has been selected to represent Canada at the 2006 World Championship tournament, the Kings announced Friday in conjunction with Team Canada. Cammalleri will travel to Riga, Latvia, where the tournament takes place from May 5-21.

Cammalleri, 23, will represent Canada in international competition for the third time. Previously, he played at the 2002 World Junior Championships in the Czech Republic (Silver Medal – 7 GP, 7-4=11) where he led the tournament in points and goals, and in the 2001 World Junior Championships in Moscow (Silver Medal – 7 GP, 4-2=6).

A native of Richmond Hill, Ontario, Cammalleri completed his third NHL season (all with the Kings) with 55 points (26-29=55) and 50 penalty minutes in 80 games played. The 5-9, 185-pound Cammalleri led the club this season in both goals (26) and power play goals (15). Cammalleri was originally selected by the Kings in the second-round (49th overall) in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

Cammalleri joins fellow Kings Dustin Brown and Joe Corvo at the World Championships. Both Brown and Corvo had been previously selected to represent United States.
