Team British Columbia’s camp begins on July 11 at Shawnigan Lake and will include Chiefs prospects Jack Finley, Campbell Arnold and Kurt Hoogendoorn. Team Saskatchewan’s camp (dates to be announced) in Wilcox will include Reed Jacobson and Alex Von Sprecken.

Finley, a forward out of Kelowna, B.C., was the Chiefs’ first round (sixth overall) pick in the bantam draft after scoring 23 goals and 25 assists for the Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy of the CSSHL.

Arnold, a goalie from Nanaimo, B.C., was the Chiefs’ second round (28th overall) pick after posting a 4.40 GAA and .877 SV% in 17 games with Shawnigan Lake School, earning three shutouts. He faced 50 or more shots six separate times, including an 80-save performance in the CSSHL Playoffs.
