Calgary, Alta. – Hockey Canada announced today the Saginaw Spirit’s Tristan Lennox will be one of 23 goaltenders participating in their virtual four-day Program of Excellence goaltending camp from June 9-12.
Twenty-three of the top goaltenders in Canada will participate in camp, as well as 11 elite-level instructors. The list of goaltenders includes five at the under-20 level, six at the under-18 level and 12 at the under-17 level.
Lennox, 17, appeared in 33 games this season for the Spirit, posting a 20-8-2-1 record, a 3.63 goals against average, and a .867 save percentage. The Cambridge, Ontario native finished the 2019-20 season with five consecutive victories and wins in seven of his final eight starts.
Lennox has also competed for Team Canada at the Under-17 World Hockey Challenge and last summer at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup, where the Canadians won a Silver medal.
“The Program of Excellence goaltending camp is a great opportunity to bring together the top young goaltenders in the country and assist with the development process for these athletes,” said Scott Salmond, senior vice-president of national teams for Hockey Canada. “Despite the unique nature of this year’s camp and the switch to an online delivery for our programs, we believe all 23 goalies will benefit from world-class instruction as we continue to prepare for a new season.”
Online sessions will include goaltender development, mental and physical performance, planning for short-term competition, environments for success, embracing the role of a back-up goaltender and more.
