Zary named to Hockey Canada selection camp roster
— Hockey Canada (@HockeyCanada) December 8, 2019
Kamloops Blazers forward Connor Zary has been added to Hockey Canada’s selection camp roster after Moncton Wildcats forward Jakob Pelletier sustained an injury making him ineligible to participate. Zary is a draft-eligible prospect so the odds seem stacked against him but all reports say that’s exactly the kind of situation he thrives in, so you never know what could happen.
The Saskatoon native has 19 goals and 22 assists in 28 games this season and was DubNetwork’s first star of the month for November.
