Brandon’s Ashley Brykaliuk and Neepawa’s Halli Krzyzaniak will try to crack Hockey Canada’s national women’s development team this summer.
Brykaliuk, a 19-year-old centre now the University of Minnesota Duluth, and Krzyzaniak, a 19-year-old defenceman at the University of North Dakota, are among 42 players who will battle for 22 roster spots at the Canadian camp from Aug. 7-17 in Calgary. The Canadian team, coached by former Brandon Wheat Kings head coach Dwayne Gylywoychuk, will face the United States’ under-22 team in a three-game series from Aug. 21-24.
Meanwhile, three Westman players are among 42 picked from across the country to try out for Canada’s under-18 team.
Sixteen-year-old Brandon goaltender Kristen Campbell — who is currently representing Hockey Canada at the IIHF Women’s High Performance Camp in Vierumaki, Finland — was invited to try out along with 17-year-old Westman Wildcats defenceman Melissa Hunt of Hartney and 16-year-old forward Sheridan Oswald of MacGregor.
The camp is slated for Aug. 7-17 in Calgary, with 22 players selected to face the United States U18 team in a three-game exhibition series from Aug. 21-24. Former national team member Delaney Collins of Pilot Mound is serving as an assistant to U18 head coach Cassandra Turner.
