Bowey gets camp invite

Kelowna Rockets defenceman Madison Bowey is one of 41 players invited to take part in Canada's National Junior summer development camp.

The camp runs Aug 3 to 8 in Brossard, Montreal and Sherbrooke, Que.

The summer camp roster includes four goaltenders, 12 defencemen and 25 forwards.

Bowey established a Rockets' team record last season with 21 goals.

He also added 39 assists while playing all 72 regular season games.

Bowey had another five goals and 14 points in 14 playoff games.

The invitees were selected by a group including Rockets president/GM, Bruce Hamilton.

In total, 22 players will be selected to represent Canada at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship, Dec. 26, 2014 to Jan. 5, 2014 in Montreal, Que. and Toronto, Ont.

“I would like to congratulate the players selected today to attend the development camp,” says Ryan Jankowski, head scout of the men’s Program of Excellence for Hockey Canada.

“This is a first step towards being chosen to represent Canada at the world juniors, but these 41 players have the first opportunity to show the coaching staff how they can help Canada succeed in Toronto and Montreal at Christmas-time.”

Several players named to the summer camp may not be available for the World Junior tournament should they crack NHL line-ups.

Players such as defencemen Aaron Ekblad and Darnell Nurse along with forwards Bo Horvat, Sam Reinhart, Sam Bennett, Jonathan Drouin and Max Domi are all expected to get a long look for their NHL teams during training camp.
