Basran a top prospect

Kelowna Rockets goaltender Roman Basran will be in Calgary this weekend, taking part in Hockey Canada's Program of Excellence goaltending camp.

Each year, Hockey Canada brings together the top young goaltenders and elite-level instructors from all across the country.

The players are put through their paces and evaluated for possible summer development and selection camps for Canada's national teams.

“The Program of Excellence goaltending camp is another great opportunity to work with the top young goaltenders in the country, and a very important part of the development process for these athletes,” said Shawn Bullock, director of men’s national teams for Hockey Canada.

“This four-day camp will provide goalies at all levels of our program the benefit of working with and learning from some of the top instructors in Canada in preparation for the upcoming season.”

Basran, ranked 18th among North American goaltenders for this year's NHL draft, is one of 26 netminders from across the country taking part in the camp.

This past season, Basran saw action in 51 games, posting a 20-19-3-1 record with a 2.79 goals against average and two shutouts.
