Moose Jaw Warrior Carter Hansen is spending his August long weekend in Toronto at Canada's Summer 18 team selection camp, 40 players will be on the ice looking to crack the 22 man roster for this months Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament.
Hansen has been in the gym and on the ice since the Tribe's season ended back in April, he admits that when he received his invitation to this camp he was a bit surprised. "I got the call mid week, I was driving home and I had no idea that it was going to happen, I was pretty happy once it did."
Hansen is one of 13 players from the WHL attending the camp, last year he got his first taste of international hockey when he played with Team West the World Under 17 Hockey Challenge in London, Ontario. "I think this time would be even bigger," said Hansen when talking about the possibility of making team Canada. "The first time you get to wear the Canadian jersey it's always a huge honour, but for this tournament it's an actual Canadian team, there's no other Canadian team there (like at the Under 17's), I think this one means twice as much as the last time."
Catching the eye of the coaching staff will not be an easy task, Hansen says he'll have to use his size to try and earn his spot on the team. "I think I'm going to have to go in there and play a power forward type. We have lot's of goal scorers there, I'm going to have to go in there skate hard, use my size, and not be afraid to bump some kids out there."
Hansen and Rosetown's Kayle Doetzel, who plays with the Red Deer Rebels, are the only two players from Saskatchewan attending camp, he says that's a huge honour considering all the top talent in the province. "Being two out of Saskatchewan, that's not a whole lot, I was a very surprised with that. I'm very honoured to be one of two Saskatchewan players there, hopefully one or both of us make it.
Canada's Summer Under 18 selection camp starts today in Toronto and runs through to Monday, after that the roster will be trimmed down to 22. From there they'll head overseas for the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament which starts August 13th in Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
