Ben Harpur still has no control of the grin that spreads across his face when asked about being selected to Team Canada's World Junior camp this summer.

The 19-year-old Ottawa Senators prospect was floored when he got the call that Hockey Canada wanted to have a closer look at him and the thrill hasn't worn off.

"I got the call on Saturday, they me I was going to be named to the roster on Monday. I didn't know what to say," said Harpur during an on-ice practice at the Bell Sensplex Saturday, his second Sens development camp since being drafted in the fourth round (108th overall) in the 2013 NHL entry draft.
