CALGARY, AB -- Calgary Flames 2013 first round pick Morgan Klimchuk is amongst the 41 players invited to Hockey Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek summer development camp.
The camp will run from Aug. 3-8 in Brossard, Montreal and Sherbrooke, Quebec and will feature games against players from Russia and the Czech Republic. It is the first step in Hockey Canada's evaluation process for the 2015 World Junior Championship roster.
The 41 invitees were selected by head scout of the men’s Program of Excellence Ryan Jankowski, Hockey Canada vice-president of hockey operations Scott Salmond and the Program of Excellence management group including Sean Burke and Bruce Hamilton.
Klimchuk scored 30 goals and 74 points in 57 regular season games with the Regina Pats. He chipped in with three goals and five points in four postseason dates as well. After his WHL season concluded, he was assigned to the Abbotsford Heat of the AHL. He suited up for four games with the Flames AHL affiliate.
Klimchuk signed a three-year entry-level deal with the Flames on Dec. 17, 2013.
The Flames selected the Calgary, AB native 28th overall last summer.
