Canada's U20 Team

Two current Badgers and a recent early departure have been invited to Canada's U20 Development Camp. Cody Goloubef and Brendan Smith will attempt to make the team as defensemen, and Kyle Turris was invited as a forward. Originally I wrote that KT would be a shoe in to make the team, but I don't see Sam Gagner or David Perron on the list. W/ KT suiting up for Phoenix come Fall, he likely won't be playing on the U20 team.

The trio makes up 75% of the players w/ a NCAA school listed as their 2007/2008. Riley Nash of Cornell is the other.

Looking at the roster of those invited is like looking at a draft board w/ the wealth of 1st and 2nd round NHL picks throughout.

Good luck to Cody, Brendan and Kyle on making the team, and in any future games that aren't against the US Team.
