Ninety-six skaters including four Brandon Wheat Kings prospects, will be joined by twelve goalkeepers from across Canada.

Kale Clague (Lloydminster), Nolan Patrick (Winnipeg), Ty Lewis (Brandon) and Tanner Kaspick (Brandon-pictured player) will be among the players that will be divided into teams.  In addition to playing three games, each player will participate in on ice skills development and learn national team systems.

As well, their fitness will be tested and each of them will participate in seminars on everything from media relations to nutrition.

A total of 66 players will be chosen to represent their country at the revamped World Under 17 Hockey Challenge, scheduled to be held in November in Sarnia, Ontario. 

In addition to changing the date of the annual event, Hockey Canada has elected to go from sending five regional teams (Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, West and Pacific) to selecting three, mising players from different parts of the country.

Canadians in the U-17 Challenge have gone on to play for the U-18, Under 20, world and Olympic men’s teams.  The event also includes European countries as well as the United States.

Patrick and Clague, who finished the 2013-14 season with the Wheat Kings, were chosen fourth and sixth overall in the 2013 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft, while Kaspick and Lewis were chosen in the second and third rounds respectively.

All four will attend Brandon’s training camp at Westman Place in late August.
