GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- University of North Dakota women's hockey senior forward Becca Kohler and junior defenseman Halli Krzyzaniak have been invited to participate in Canada's National Women's Development Team selection camp in Calgary, Aug. 6-16.
Additionally, UND senior forward Meghan Dufault was invited, but is unable to attend the camp.
The camp is part of Hockey Canada's National Teams' Summer Showcase and is hosted at the Markin MacPhail Centre at WintSport's Canada Olympic Park. The 43 players invited to the camp will compete for a spot on a 23-player squad that will travel to Lake Placid, N.Y., for a three-game series against the U.S. Women's Under-22 Team, Aug. 19-22.
Kohler, Krzyzaniak and Dufault were all invited to the same camp in 2014, with Dufault and Krzyzaniak being selected for the three-game series against the United States. Krzyzaniak also went on to play with the senior women's team at both the 2014 Four Nations Cup and the 2015 IIHF Women's World Championship.
The 43 players attending the selection camp will be split into two teams, Blue and Gold, which will participate in several practices and intrasquad games, as well as off-ice training, fitness testing and high-performance classroom sessions. Intrasquad games are free and open to the public.
