Canucks young guns headed to Shawnigan

Perhaps hoping that Shawnigan Lake School’s undefeated record in its first season of competition in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League will rub off on them, the Vancouver Canucks will be holding their annual prospects development camp at the school’s new arena this summer.

Canucks prospects, including Vancouver draft picks and undrafted college free agents, will gather at the school for a week of training sessions from July 3-9. All on-ice practices will be open to the public.

Shawnigan opened the new arena earlier this year. The school’s senior boys hockey team had a perfect record in the CSSHL’s Varsity division, competing against teams from across B.C., Alberta and the Pacific Northwest, winning the league title in its inaugural season.
