Schwartz, Di Giuseppe named to Canadian junior team camp

Hockey Canada on Monday named 41 players to its World Junior Team selection camp and among the named are two college players.

Colorado College sophomore forward Jaden Schwartz and Michigan freshman forward Phil Di Giuseppe will aim to impress the Team Canada brass. Schwartz made the team last year, but was injured at the tournament in Buffalo as Canada won silver.

The camp will take place Dec. 10-14 at the WinSport Canada Athletic & Ice Complex in Calgary. The World Junior Championship takes place Dec. 26, 2011-Jan. 5, 2012 in Calgary and Edmonton.


  1. Only 2 players? I assume the rest are from juniors??? Or will they come from Canadian colleges? How does Canada expect to do well when selecting only 2 D-1 players??? Pathetic and I’m sure the U.S. will blow the door off them.
