Hockey Canada and USA Hockey are hosting their respective women’s U-18 and U-22 national team selection processes this week, both featuring a slew of former Selects players in preparation for the upcoming Summer Series.
Selection camps for Hockey Canada are taking place in Calgary, Alberta — the host city for next week’s three-game series — and includes 13 Selects alums for the U-22 squad as well as 13 for the U-18 squad.

In total, 63 Selects alums are lobbying for a chance to represent their respective countries at the U-18 and U-22 levels for the 2018-19 season. Additionally, Selects alum Emily Fulton along with newly-acquired Girls Selects Hockey Director for Western Canada, Jenelle Kohanchuk and former World Selects Invitational coach Amanda Mazzotta, will all join Hockey Canada as well on the coaching side of the selection camp.
