Forward prospect Tyler Toffoli was one of 46 players invited Friday to Team Canada’s national junior team development camp.
The camp, held Aug. 3-7 in Edmonton and Fort McMurray, Alberta, is used to winnow down the roster to 22 players for the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship, which will be held in Calgary and Edmonton from Dec. 26 to Jan. 5, 2012.
Toffoli, who recently signed his entry-level contract, has never played in the World Junior Championships. He tied for the Ontario Hockey League lead in 2010-11 with 108 points and led the league with 57 goals. The 20-year-old right wing scored a goal in his first pro game with the Manchester Monarchs in April, then had a goal in five Calder Cup playoff games.
