Brassard, Driedger invited to Hockey Canada camp

by Chris Lund / Ottawa Senators

A pair of Sens goaltending prospects are getting recognized for great 2012-13 seasons and will have a chance to see how they stack up against Canada's best.

Francois Brassard of the Quebec Remparts and Chris Driedger of the Calgary Hitmen have both been invited to Hockey Canada's eighth-annual Program of Excellence goaltending camp. Both goaltenders will be part of the U-20 player pool when the camp kicks off on June 13.

The camp will be a good measuring stick for the pair as they will be instructed by some of the top junior goaltending coaches in Canada and have the opportunity to train with other elite Canadian goaltenders in their age bracket. 

A good showing at the camp could also open other doors as it is used as a scouting opportunity for the national program. If all goes well we could see Brassard or Driedger (or both) suiting up for Team Canada when the World Juniors roll around.

The camp runs from June 13 to 16 at the Markin MacPhail Centre at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary. Sens fans in the area will be able to get a glimpse of the team's future netminders as the camp is open to the public and free of charge.
