TORONTO - As expected, Hockey Canada has invited Brayden Schenn to the world junior team selection camp.
Schenn, a forward who helped Canada win a silver medal at the 2010 world junior, was sent by the Los Angeles Kings back to his junior club, the Brandon Wheat Kings.
That opened the door for Schenn, the younger brother of Maple Leafs defenceman Luke Schenn, to return to Hockey Canada’s radar.
Schenn is one four players at camp — defencemen Ryan Ellis, Jared Cowen and Calvin de Haan are the others — who played for Canada last winter.
The selection camp opens Dec. 12 at the MasterCard Centre in Toronto, with the 22-player roster being announced on Dec. 15. Schenn’s inclusion means there will be 40 players, including 24 forwards, 12 defencemen and four goalies, at the camp.
