KAMLOOPS — Kamloops Blazers goaltender Connor Ingram has been named to Canada’s World Junior selection camp roster. The camp will run from December 11 to 14 in Blainville, Quebec, just outside Montreal.

Ingram attended Hockey Canada’s Program of Excellence goaltender camp in June 2016 and Hockey Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek Summer Development Camp in August 2016.

Ingram is the first Blazers goaltender to be invited to Canada’s World Junior Selection since Deven Dubnyk in 2005-2006. He is also the first player from the hockey club to be invited to the selection camp since JC Lipon in 2012-2013

In total, 32 players have been invited to the camp. The World Junior Championships run from December 26th to January 5th in Toronto and Montreal.
