Jackson Parsons invited to Hockey Canada’s Virtual Program of Excellence Goaltending Camp

Ontario Hockey League

 

CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada continues preparations for the 2020-21 season with a virtual four-day Program of Excellence goaltending camp from June 9-12.

Typically serving as the initial evaluation stage for summer development and selection camps for Canada’s national men’s teams, the online camp will focus on goaltender development and evaluation through online education.

Twenty-three of the top goaltenders in Canada will participate in camp, including the Rangers’ third round pick from the 2020 OHL Priority Selection, Jackson Parsons.

Parsons signed an OHL standard player agreement with the organization in early May after posting a .929 save percentage and three shutouts in 23 games this past season with the Cornwall Colts. The 6’0”, 185-pound native of Embrun, ON also finished with a 2.28 goals against average in just under 1,300 minutes played.

The complete list of goaltenders includes five at the under-20 level, six at the under-18 level and 12 (including Parsons) at the under-17 level.

“The Program of Excellence goaltending camp is a great opportunity to bring together the top young goaltenders in the country and assist with the development process for these athletes,” said Scott Salmond, senior vice-president of national teams for Hockey Canada. “Despite the unique nature of this year’s camp and the switch to an online delivery for our programs, we believe all 23 goalies will benefit from world-class instruction as we continue to prepare for a new season.”

Online sessions will include goaltender development, mental and physical performance, planning for short-term competition, environments for success, embracing the role of a back-up goaltender and more.
