Five LA Kings Prospects Invited To Canada’s World Junior Selection Camp

CALGARY, AB AND EL SEGUNDO, CA — On December 2, Hockey Canada and the Los Angeles Kings announced that forwards Brayden Schenn and Brandon Kozun, defensemen Colten Teubert and Nicolas Deslauriers, along with goaltender Martin Jones have been invited to attend the selection camp for Canada’s National Junior Team.

The five Kings prospects are the most any National Hockey League team will have at the camp. Only the Edmonton Oilers with three prospects attending will have more than two prospects at the camp, which will be held December 12-16, 2009 in Regina, Saskatchewan. 36 players were invited to participate.

Canada’s National Junior Team will be selected at the end of the camp. The team will then play three exhibition games before the start of the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championships, which begin on January 2, 2010.

Schenn, 18, made his Kings and NHL debut on November 26 at Vancouver after signing a One-Day NHL Regular Season Amateur Tryout Agreement. Read more of this post
