Cornwall, Ontario played host to this year’s Under-17 Provincial Camp that runs from July 4th-8th.
Four of Barrie’s 2012 OHL draft picks are attending the camp with hopes of representing Ontario at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in Quebec, beginning December 29th, 2012.
Brendan Perlini, the Colts first round pick (16th overall) headlined the list of Colts to attend the camp.
“It was such a great experience for me,” said Perlini. “I got to play with a lot of great players and it really helped my development to see how other players handle themselves on and off the ice.”
Perlini was joined by third round pick defenceman CJ Garcia, 5th round pick goalie Mackenzie Blackwood and 11th round pick defenceman Marcel Fatovic.
There are a total of 69 players that were drafted in the 2012 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection that are attending the camp.
Last year Aaron Ekblad and Alex Yuill helped Team Ontario capture the bronze medal in Windsor, Ontario.
