Gauthier invited to U-18 camp

Taylor Gauthier of the Prince George Cougars is one of three goalies selected for Canada's training camp roster for the world under-18 hockey championship in Sweden.
Gauthier, who turned 18 on Feb. 18, won't have far to go. The 23-player camp is being held in his Calgary hometown next week.
In his second WHL season with the Cougars, Gauthier played 55 games, posting 15 wins with a 3.25 goals-against average, .899 save percentage and three shutouts.
Gauthier last played for his country in August 2018. He came on in relief the championship game and helped Canada win the gold medal at the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup in Edmonton. He was also part of the 2017 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in Fort St. John and Dawson Creek.
Now ranked fifth among North American goalies available for the 2019 NHL draft, Gauthier played in the Sherwin Williams CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in Red Deer in January.
The world tournament will be played April 18-28 in Ornkoldsvik and Umea, Sweden.
TSN will be in Sweden to broadcast 15 games and will show all of Canada's games, starting with their opener against Switzerland on Friday, April 19.
Canada shares Group A with Belarus, Finland, Switzerland and Czech Republic. Group B includes Sweden, Latvia, Russia, United States and Slovakia.
