Canada's Under 20 Selection Camp

Well no Tigers were directly invited, Minus Willie Desjardin of course.
However One list player and a former listed player of the Tigers were invited to Canada's Selection Camp camp.

Dylan Olsen, and Patrick Wiercioch were invited.

Olsen is a listed player, who the tigers are trying to recruit.

Wiercioch was originally listed by the tigers but was traded to portland in the Micheal Sauer deal.

Wiercoach eventually didn't report, and went to the NCAA route.

TSN has an article about the NHL scouting Combine which is being held this weekend.
No Mention of Linden Vey so far, but DYlan Olsen was mentioned as having a poor showing at the Bench Press for a 6'2 205lbs kid. but there is a note saying kids from non major junior hockey tend to do not as well as the other kids.

Edit2: Hockey Night In Canada just had a piece on Darren Helm. About how he got cut and had to play Junior B for a year before making the tigers, and getting drafted.

It was On Don Cherry's Coaches Corner. Here is the Video, the piece about Helm starts about 5 minutes in.
