About the Male U17 Program
The U17 program is a partnership with club teams, the Canadian Hockey League (CHL), Branches and Hockey Canada designed to introduce players to International High Performance Hockey which involves a series of short term camps and competitions just as our national teams are exposed to at a higher level. It is the first step in Hockey Canada’s Program of Excellence and a pre-cursor to Canada’s Under 18, World Junior and Men’s National Teams. The U17 program has produced hundreds of NHL draft picks.
