Lawson Crouse

Hockey Canada announced 29 players have been invited to attend Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek Selection Camp, beginning Dec. 11 at the MasterCard Centre for Hockey Excellence in Toronto, Ont.

The roster includes two goaltenders, 10 defencemen and 17 forwards. Canada’s final roster for the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship in Toronto and Montreal will include 22 players, and must be finalized by Dec. 25.

Kingston’s Lawson Crouse joins the injured Connor McDavid as the only NHL Draft eligible players invited to the camp. We mentioned back in our pre-season newsletter that we thought Crouse might be able to earn an invite based on his play at the Ivan Hlinka tourney.
