Hockey Canada names rosters for October Camp and 4 Nations Cup

Hockey Canada has named rosters for their October Camp and the Four Nations Cup. Badger defensemen Carla MacLeod, Meaghan Mikkelson, and Bobbie Jo Slusar have made both teams. Looking at the rosters, the Four Nations team includes some younger players currently playing in the NCAA as well as some of the players from the October Camp roster.

The October Camp will take place October 9-13 in Moncton, NB and will consist of on-ice sessions and 4 games against local Midget AAA boys teams. It will be held in conjunction with the Atlantic Challenge Cup which runs October 10-13.

The Four Nations Cup will be held November 4-9 in Lake Placid, NY. Team Canada will also hold a short camp prior to the tournament.

Hockey Canada also indicates it will hold team camps in December and January, leading up to the 2009 IIHF World Women's Championships in Finland on April 4-12. The IIHF roster will be named in February.
