Kennewick, WA — Americans forward Sasha Mutala has been invited to Hockey Canada’s Under-18 Summer Selection Camp. Forty-four of Canada’s top hockey prospects were invited to the camp – 14 from the Western Hockey League and only two from the U.S. Division.
“It’s a big honour to fight for a spot to wear the Maple Leaf. I look forward to what will be a great experience,” said Mutala. “I would like to thank my past coaches, teammates, and organizations for all he support in making me who I am today. As well as my parents for sticking by my side.”
The tournament will take place July 28 – August 1 in Calgary, AB. Players selected at the camp will compete for Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team at the Hlikna Gretzky Cup this August in Edmonton and Red Deer.
The 17-year old Vancouver, BC native was selected 6th overall by Tri-City in the 2016 Bantam Draft. He played 68 games and tallied 26 total points (11G, 15A) during his 2017-18 rookie season for the Americans.
Mutala had an opportunity to wear the Maple Leaf for Team Canada last November at the 2017 World U-17 Hockey Challenge. He was the captain for Canada Black and recorded 8 total points (5G, 3A) in 5 games.
