Spokane Chiefs forward Jack Finley has been invited to Hockey Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team selection camp, set to take place July 26-30 at the Markin MacPhail Centre at Winsport’s Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.
Finley is one of 44 players invited to the camp including 26 forwards. Those invited will compete for a spot on Canada’s roster at the 2019 Hlinka Gretzky Cup in Breclav, Czech Republic and Piestany, Slovakia.
“We are excited to bring together a group of 44 athletes with a solid foundation of junior and international experience for selection camp. The under-18 camp is unlike any other, as players are being evaluated from the moment they arrive at camp and are preparing to compete in short-term competition,” said Shawn Bullock, director of men’s national teams for Hockey Canada.
“Historically, Canada has been successful at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup, and we know all 44 players will come to camp ready to compete for a spot on the team and the opportunity to wear the Maple Leaf in international competition.”
Finley scored 19 points (9G-10A) as a 16-year-old rookie for the Chiefs during the 2018-19 campaign. He added 8 points (1G-7A) in 15 playoff games. Originally from Kelowna, he was the Chiefs’ first-round (6th overall) pick the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft.
