This summer from July 28th to August 5th in Plymouth, Michigan, USA Hockey is hosting 2017 World Junior Summer Showcase. Teams from the US, Canada, Sweden, and Finland will participate in the week-long camp meant to prepare teams for December’s IIHF World Junior tournament.
Golden Knights Cody Glass, Nick Suzuki, and Nic Hague were all selected to participate for Hockey Canada in the camp. Nolan Patrick (2017, 2nd overall), Cale Makar (2017, 4th overall), and Pierre-Luc Dubois (2016, 3rd overall) are also part of the Canadian roster.
The top four picks in this year’s draft from the United States, Casey Mittelstadt (8th overall), Josh Norris (19th overall), and Kailer Yamamoto (22nd overall) are all on the American roster.
Rosters for Sweden and Finland have yet to be released, but we can expect to see Erik Brannstrom and possibly Lucas Elvenes on the list for Sweden.
Team Canada’s first game is on August 1st.
Update: Brannstrom is on Sweden’s roster. Elvenes is not. The Golden Knights do not have a representative on Finland or the United States teams. See all rosters here.
