LETHBRIDGE - The Lethbridge Hurricanes' Stuart Skinner will join 30 other goalies this month at the annual Program of Excellence goaltender camp.
It takes place from June 9 to 11 at the Markin MacPhail Centre at Winsport's Canada Olympic Park in Calgary for participants to prepare for the 2018 World Junior Championship summer development camp.
The 18-year old will join fellow net-minders Carter Hart (Everett) and Ian Scott (Prince Albert) as the only Western Hockey League representatives at the under-20 camp. Three goalies from the Ontario Hockey League and one more from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League are also expected to attend.
Skinner sent off his third season in Lethbridge helping his team reach the Eastern Conference Championship Series for the first time since 2008. He was in the net for all 20 post-season games, posting a 3.09 goals against average (GAA) and a .916 save percentage (SV%).
He managed to rack up a 34-8-3-2 overall record during the 2016-17 regular season, boasting a 3.26 GAA and a .905 SV%.
The Edmonton native recently made an appearance at the National Hockey League Draft Combine in Buffalo, New York. He is slated for selection in the upcoming NHL Entry Draft in Chicago later this month, according to a Lethbridge Hurricanes media release.
