Toronto, Ont. – Hockey Canada announced Wednesday the addition of Saginaw Spirit defenceman Mason Millman to its National Junior Team Summer Development Camp set to take place online from July 27 to 31.
Millman joins Spirit teammates Tristan Lennox, Cole Perfetti and Ryan Suzuki along with 13 other OHL players and Canadian National Junior Team head coach Andre Tourigny of the Ottawa 67’s in drawing invitations to the virtual camp.
A soon-to-be 19-year-old from London, Ont., Millman recorded 44 points (13-31–44) over 58 games in his sophomore season after being selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the fourth round (103rd overall) of the 2019 NHL Draft. The 6-foot-1, 180Ib. left-shot defender has collected 69 points (16-53–69) over 130 career regular season games and helped the Spirit reach the Western Conference Championship Series in 2019, recording five points (2-3–5) over 13 playoff outings. Millman was originally Saginaw’s seventh round (124th overall) pick in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection.
The 2021 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship returns to Canadian ice this December, with Edmonton, Alta. and Red Deer, Alta. set to co-host the annual holiday tradition.
