Kimberly Newell of Burnaby was one of 40 players, including just four goalies, to be invited to the selection camp for Canada's national women's under-18 hockey team.

The camp will take place at the Canadian International Hockey Academy in Rockland, Ont. from Aug. 7 through 14.

At the selection camp, a team of 22 players will be chosen for a threegame mini series against the United States on Aug. 18, 19 and 21.

Following the series, Hockey Canada scouts and team coaching staff will continue to evaluate players through their 2011-12 league seasons in preparation to chosing Canada's national team at the 2012 International Ice Hockey Federation u-18 world championships in the Czech Republic in January.

Newell, who played goal for the Tier 2 league runner-up Burnaby Winter Club midget A1 boys' team last season, was one of just three B.C. skaters named to the camp squad.

The other two B.C. skaters invited to the camp were defender Jordan Krause and forward Julia McKinnon, both of Kelowna.

U-16 INVITED TO CAMP

Nicolas Bruyere of Burnaby made the 34-player shortlist for B.C. Hockey's under-16 provincial camp.

Burnaby Winter Club's Victor Dombrovskiy also earned a spot on defence following the evaluation camp in Penticton.

The players will continue to be evaluated through the season with a final roster to be announced in time for the Western Branch Challenge in Moose Jaw, Sask. Oct. 27 to 30.
