CALGARY, Alberta -
Hockey Canada announced Wednesday (July 10) that current Providence College men's hockey sophomore Mark Jankowski (Dundas, Ontario) has been added to the roster of players invited to Canada's National Junior Team Summer Development Camp, which is set to take place Aug. 4-10 in Brossard, Que., and Lake Placid, N.Y.
Currently attending the Calgary Flames' Development Camp, Jankowski is the second college player invited to the camp, joining Boston College sophomore defenseman Mike Matheson.
Selected in the first round of the 2012 NHL Draft by Calgary (21st overall), Jankowski played in 34 games with the Friars as a freshman in 2012-13. He scored seven goals and added 11 assists for 18 points, which ranked tied for fourth on the team. With a goal and two assists, he had a career-best three points in Providence's 6-2 win over Northeastern (11/16). Jankowski tallied game-winning goals at UVM (11/2) and versus Northeastern (2/22). In the playoffs, he helped the Friars to a game three Hockey East Quarterfinal series-clinching win over UNH (3/17) with a goal and an assist. 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.
