The best Canada has to offer will indeed visit the Stampede City.

Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson confirmed Team Canada will hold a pre-world championship training camp next month to prepare the squad for the tournament, April 30 to May 15 in Austria.

Exact dates and the location of the training camp, most likely Father David Bauer Arena, will be announced in the coming days. The length of the camp will be roughly one week.

Nicholson also said between April 19 and 22, Team Canada will play a couple of pre-tournament exhibition games against the U.S. but wouldn't divulge if they'd be held in Calgary.

The Canadians will also play a pair of exhibition games overseas against Latvia and the Czech Republic.
