Trio of 'Tobans going to junior camp

Three hockey players from Manitoba were selected to Canada's National Junior Team summer development camp roster Monday.

Madison Bowey (Winnipeg) of the Kelowna Rockets, Travis Sanheim (Elkhorn) of the Calgary Hitmen and Jayce Hawryluk (Roblin) of the Brandon Wheat Kings are among the 41 players at the camp that could potentially lead to an invitation to the national junior team selection camp in December.

From there, 22 players will be selected to represent Canada at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Winnipeg Jets prospects Josh Morrissey, Nic Petan and Eric Comrie are also part of the camp that will head to Europe to play against national junior teams in the Czech Republic and Russia this summer.

Bowey, 19, was selected by the Washington Capitals in the second round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, while both Sanheim and Hawryluk are ranked in the top 60 North American skaters by NHL central scouting for the 2014 draft later this month.

 

Steinbach to host games

Steinbach will host the Manitoba summer games in 2016, Sport Manitoba announced Monday.

With the successful bid and evaluation of facilities, Steinbach will take the torch from Swan Valley, who hosted the last Power Smart Manitoba Summer Games in 2012. The games will be held Aug. 7-13.

"We are thrilled and honoured to be chosen to host the 2016 Power Smart Manitoba Summer Games," said Trish Enns, co-chair of the Steinbach Bid Committee, in a media release. "We are excited to play a role in the development of our province's athletes, and to foster pride in our community and region."

The games will include events such as athletics, baseball, basketball, cycling, golf, sailing, soccer, softball, swimming, triathlon and volleyball, with up to 1,800 participating athletes.


New WCT event announced

There's a new curling event in town, or at least within driving distance. The Canad Inns Classic for Women, with a purse of $60,000, was announced Monday by Canad Inns.

The 'spiel is scheduled for Oct. 24-27, in Portage la Prairie, as part of the World Curling Tour. It is expected to draw top teams from across Canada and around the world.
