Bilous, Miner among Hockey Canada invitees

Langley’s Boston Bilous and Vancouver Giants prospect Trent Miner among those who will hit the ice in Calgary

One Langley goaltender and another who could soon call the Langley Events Centre his home rink were among the goaltenders invited to a Hockey Canada camp.

Boston Bilous and Trent Miner are among the 16 U17 goalies hit the ice this past weekend in Calgary for the Program of Excellence camp.

The three-day camp ran June 9 to 11 at the Markin MacPhail Centre at WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.

“For the past 11 years, this goaltending camp has allowed us to monitor, evaluate and continue to develop elite-level players in a short amount of time,” said Scott Salmond, Hockey Canada’s vice-president of hockey operations and men’s national teams.

“Some players have just ended their seasons, but the opportunity to scout them all season and through this camp, we’re able to look ahead and plan for our development and selection camps with the talent we have.”

Bilous is from Langley while Miner is from Souris, Man. Miner is signed to play with the Vancouver Giants while Bilous has signed with the Edmonton Oil Kings. Both goalies were selected in the 2016 Western Hockey League bantam draft with Miner going in the first round and Bilous in the fourth.

Both goalies played last season in their respective major midget hockey leagues.

The camp is the initial evaluation stage for summer development and selection camps for the various age groups.

The U17 age group will be led by former NHL goaltender Rick Wamsley.
