For the season, the Friars went 10-1-2 when he notched at least one point.
The summer camp will serve as a precursor to Canada's National Junior Team Selection Camp this coming December. In total, 22 players will be selected to represent Canada at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship, Dec. 26, 2013 to Jan. 5, 2014 in Malmö, Sweden.
For the summer camp, invitees will meet in Brossard, Quebec at the Montreal Canadiens' practice facility for two practices on Aug. 4 and 5 before travelling to Lake Placid, N.Y., for exhibition games against Finland (Aug. 7), Sweden (Aug. 8) and the United States (Aug. 10).
The August 10 game between Canada and the U.S. could feature two Friars, as current sophomore goaltender Jon Gillies (South Portland, Maine) will be at the U.S. National Junior Evaluation Camp, which runs from Aug. 3-10, in Lake Placid, N.Y.
Including Gillies' appearance with Team USA last year, 11 Friars have combined to make 12 all-time appearances in the IIHF Junior World Championships, with all 11 having played for the U.S. When the U.S. defeated Sweden in the gold medal game last year, Gillies became the first Friar to earn a medal at the prestigious tournament.
