Oshawa, ON– Hockey Canada announced today that Oshawa Generals forwards Serron Noel and Allan McShane has been invited to participate in Hockey Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek Summer Development Camp. This is the first step in making the final roster of players who will compete in December at the World Junior Championships held in Ostrava and Trinec, Czech Republic.
Noel, the Ottawa, ON native, just completed third season with the Generals, finishing third in team scoring. This season he has amassed a total of 81 points (34 goals, 47 assists) in 68 games, establishing himself as a power forward and one of the fastest players in the Ontario Hockey League in the process. Drafted in the second round (34th overall) in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, the 6’5, 210-pound forward attended the Panthers rookie camp following the draft and was invited to training camp last September before being returned to the Generals. He signed an entry-level deal with the club in March.
Internationally, Noel has played for Canada’s National Men’s Under-18 Team at the 2018 IIHF U18 World Championship, and won a gold medal with Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team at the 2017 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup. He also played for Team Canada Red at the 2016 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.
Drafted in the fourth round, (97th overall) in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens, McShane attended the Canadiens rookie camp immediately following the draft and their main camp in September before being returned to the Generals. The Collingwood, ON native finished his third Ontario Hockey League season with career best numbers appearing in 62 games recording 34 goals, 35 assists for 69 points.
On an international stage, McShane has played for Team Canada twice in his OHL career, first at the U17 Hockey Challenge suiting up with Team Canada Black earning a silver medal and leading the team in scoring. He has played for Canada at the U18 World Championships, again leading the team in scoring at the tournament. Before playing in the OHL, McShane represented Canada as a Youth Olympian in Norway winning a silver medal.
The National Junior Team Sport Chek Summer Development Camp will take place from July 27th to August 4th 2019, in Plymouth, MI.
