Forwards Martin Reway and Peter Cehlarik, both selected in the 2013 NHL Draft, highlight the list of players invited to selection camp for Slovakia ahead of the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Reway, a fourth-round choice (No. 116) of the Montreal Canadiens, had four goals and 10 points in five games for eighth-place Slovakia in the 2014 WJC. Cehlarik, a third-round pick (No. 90) of the Boston Bruins, had three assists in five games for the Slovaks last year.

Slovakia, which will be coached by Ernest Bokros, hasn't placed higher than sixth at the WJC since 2009, when it finished fourth.

The camp roster also features two players regarded as potential picks in the 2015 NHL Draft: right wing Radovan Bondra and defenseman Erik Cernak. Bondra (6-foot-5, 200 pounds), a C-rated skater on NHL Central Scouting's November players to watch list, had five goals, 10 points and 10 penalty minutes in 13 games with Slovakia's Under-18 team this season before being promoted to the under-20 team.

Cernak (6-3, 192), a B-rated skater according to NHL Central Scouting, has four goals, six points and 14 penalty minutes in 28 games for HC Kosice in Slovakia.

Training camp will be held in Peterborough, Ontario. Slovakia has two pre-tournament exhibition games, against Switzerland on Dec. 21 and Czech Republic on Dec. 23.
