Peterborough Petes goaltender Hunter Jones is one of twenty six netminders invited to attend the annual Hockey Canada Program of Excellence Goaltending Camp taking place June 5-8 at the Markin MacPhail Centre in Calgary.
The camp brings together some of the best goaltending talent in the nation with top Canadian instructors from across North America, and kicks off the evaluation period for summer development and selection camps at the under-17, under-18, and under-20 levels.
“The Program of Excellence goaltending camp is another great opportunity to work with the top young goaltenders in the country, and a very important part of the development process for these athletes,” said Shawn Bullock, director of men’s national teams for Hockey Canada. “This four-day camp will provide goalies at all levels of our program the benefit of working with and learning from some of the top instructors in Canada in preparation for the upcoming season.”
Jones is no stranger to Hockey Canada’s Program of Excellence, having been invited to attend three consecutive Summer Goaltending Camps (2016, 2017, and 2019). He has twice won silver in Hockey Canada events – with Team Canada East at the 2016 World Junior A Hockey Challenge, and with Team Canada Black at the 2016 Under-17 World Hockey Challenge. Jones was also selected by Hockey Canada management to represent the OHL at the 2018 CIBC Canada Russia Series.
Jones is being considered, along with nine other goaltenders, for one of two spots on Canada’s national under-20 team.
