Spokane Chiefs goaltender Lukas Parik is one of nine Western Hockey League players invited to the Czech Republic’s Under-20 Summer Training Camp.

Parik, a 2001-born goalie from Neratovice, Czech Republic, turned in a memorable rookie WHL campaign last season, posting a 2.73 GAA and .917 SV% in 32 appearances. His season was capped by a shutout and the first goalie goal in Spokane franchise history on March 10.

A third-round pick by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, Parik competed for the Czechs as an underage at last year’s world junior tournament.

This year’s camp, comprised of 18 forwards, 10 defensemen and four goaltenders, is used to help determine the Czech roster for the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship. The tournament will be held in Edmonton and Red Deer, Alta. from December 26, 2020, to January 5, 2021.

Other WHL players invited include Filip Koffer (Hradec Kralove, CZE / Prince George Cougars), Martin Lang (Rokycany, CZE / Moose Jaw Warriors), Pavel Novak (Tabor, CZE / Kelowna Rockets), Jonas Peterek (Ostrava, CZE / Kelowna Rockets), Michal Teply (Havlickuv Brod, CZE / Winnipeg ICE) and Matej Toman (Ceske Budejovice, CZE / Swift Current Broncos) are included in the under-20 forward group. Two defensemen, Simon Kubicek (Jindrichuv Hradec, CZE / Seattle Thunderbirds) and Radek Kucerik (Kyjov, CZE / Saskatoon Blades) were invited.
