Sarnia Sting 2018 draft picks Jacob Perreault and Nolan Dillingham-Morelli have been invited to Hockey Canada’s U17 national development camp.
Perreault, who is the son of former NHLer Yanic, scored 27 goals and added 23 assists in 47 games with the Chicago Mission U16 team this past season.
Dillingham-Morelli is coming off a 30 game season on defence with the Mississauga Rebels Minor Midget AAA team in which he scored three goals and dished out 16 assists.
The camp will take place July 21-27 at the Markin MacPhail Centre at WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.
For the duration of the week-long camp, the players – 12 goaltenders, 36 defencemen, and 63 forwards – will be split into six teams for on- and off-ice training, fitness testing, practices, intrasquad games, and classroom sessions.
Following the development camp, players will continue to be evaluated through the early season before 66 are named to one of three Canadian national teams that will compete at the 2018 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge scheduled for Nov. 3-10 in Saint John and Quispamsis, N.B.
