LADD AND NASTIUK INVITED TO CANADA\u2019S 2005 JUNIOR TEAM SELECTION CAMP

32 players will attend camp in Winnipeg

 
 

Kevin Nastiuk and Andrew Ladd will compete for the chance to represent Team Canada.

RALEIGH, N.C. (Dec. 6, 2004) – Hockey Canada and the Canadian Hockey League (CHL) announced that 32 of Canada’s top players under 20 years old have been invited to Canada’s 2005 National Junior Team Selection Camp, to take place December 12-16, 2004 in Winnipeg. Hurricanes prospects Andrew Ladd and Kevin Nastiuk were among those selected. Of the 32 players invited to the camp, 22 will make the final roster for the 2005 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Hockey Championships in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The tournament will take place from Dec. 25, 2004 through Jan. 4, 2005.

Ladd, 18, was selected by the Hurricanes with the fourth overall pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. A native of Maple Ridge, B.C., Ladd was the top rated North American skater in the 2004 Draft after tallying 75 points (30g, 45a) in 72 games for the Calgary Hitmen of the Western Hockey League in 2003-04. Ladd (6’ 1’’, 202 lbs.) has 23 points (10g, 13a) and 86 penalty minutes in 31 games for Calgary in 2004-05. Ladd was a key member of Team WHL in its recent series against Team Russia, tallying a pair of goals in the opener of the ADT Canada-Russia Challenge.

Nastiuk, 19, ranks first among WHL netminders this season in shutouts (7), second in wins (15), fourth in goals-against average (1.78) and fifth in save percentage (.931). The Edmonton native was named Canadian Hockey League Player of the Week for the week ending Oct. 27 after compiling a record of 2-0 with a 0.50 GAA and a .964 save percentage for the week. He was also named WHL Player of the Month for Sept./Oct. 2004 after tallying 10 wins and a tie with six shutouts and a 0.89 GAA for that time period. A fourth-round choice (126th overall) of the Hurricanes in the 2003 Entry Draft, Nastiuk led the Medicine Hat Tigers to the Memorial Cup Finals in 2003-04, tallying a record of 16-4 with a 1.93 GAA in 20 playoff games.

The Selection Camp roster for Canada includes 12 returning players from last year’s Canadian World Junior Team, which fell to the United States in the gold-medal game of the IIHF World Junior Championships. Canada plays its first game of the 2005 tournament on Dec. 25, against Slovakia at 4:30 p.m.
