13 WHL Players Named To Ivan Hlinka Tryout Camp

The future is bright in the Western Hockey League.

Atleast that's how it looks right now as Hockey Canada today unveiled the list of 40 players invited to take part in the tryout camp prior to the Ivan Hlinka tournament later this summer.  13 WHL players were included on that list as they will tryout for the team in Toronto from August 3rd to 6th.

After that, the team will be cut down to 22 and shipped to Europe to take part in the event that runs from August 13th to 18th in Slovakia and the Czech Republic.  Last year at the event, Canada won the Gold, knocking off Sweden 4-1 in the final game after finishing 2nd in their pool behind the Swedes.

It's a bright list of players from the Western Hockey League, with a ton of players representing each position.  Two goalies, five defenceman and six forwards have been chosen to take part from the WHL.

Looking ahead to the 2013 NHL draft, it also looks very promising for the WHL.  While the 2012 draft is all about the defender from the WHL, the league is much better represented up front for 2013.  Names like Needham, Klimchuk, Lazar lead the way on this list, while a guy like Hunter Shinkaruk will also make major noise, despite being too old for the Ivan Hlinka this time around.

It should be a fun tournament to follow as it's a big stepping stone for these players before they enter their draft year.

The roster for the 2012 Ivan Hlinka tryout camp is as follows:
